Turkey may be gobbling up all the headlines at this time of year but, to be honest, it will never be the equal of a great roast chicken.
French chefs have created many spectacular dishes over the years. The pinnacle of them all is the roast chicken.
Enjoy leg and breast with today’s Big Deal on a rotisserie chicken meal from the recently launched Atlantic Bar and Brasserie.
Stylish French restaurant
Located on St Vincent Place, Atlantic Bar and Brasserie is a stylish French restaurant on the lower ground floor, underneath sister restaurant The Anchor Line.
Inspired by an early Glasgow pop-up restaurant which was built for the Empire Exhibition of 1938, Atlantic offers a contemporary French brasserie and bar in a sophisticated and glamorous vintage setting.
Available Sunday to Thursday, this offer is for two people to share a delicious whole rotisserie chicken at Atlantic Bar and Brasserie. As well as a sauce of your choice, the offer includes three side dishes and a grand sharing dessert.
Succulent and full of flavour, the chickens are brined and marinated 48 hours before they go on the spit so they stay perfectly moist while they cook to perfection.
They are served with your choice of sauce. Choose from jus de rôti, Béarnaise and smoked hickory, all made fresh each day.
Among others, the side dishes available include French fries, potatoes roasted in duck fat, creamy mashed potato, baby rocket salad and sautéed peas and gem lettuce with smoked pancetta.
The grand sharing dessert is a gorgeous mix of the most popular puddings at Atlantic Bar and Brasserie.
Atlantic Bar and Brasserie has not been open long but is already a hit with Glasgow diners. This is what a couple of recent visitors had to say on the restaurant’s Facebook page:
‘Absolutely beautiful food. Cannot wait to go back. Highly recommend. Stunning interior and food/service to match.’
‘Stunning decor, food and table location (chef’s table near the open kitchen). Surprised at how big the restaurant actually was! We were a table of six and everyone really enjoyed every course – tres bien! Great night with great company.’
Christmas gift idea
With vouchers valid from now until the end of February 2016, this offer would make a fantastic Christmas present.
It would also be ideal for a night out with friends or family before or after Christmas. The thought of crisp, salty chicken skin and succulent chicken meat makes a cold January evening seem quite inviting.
