Hindsight can make us all wise. A favourite tale in the Big Deal office is the Decca Recording Co who, in 1962, rejected The Beatles on the grounds that ‘We don’t like their sound and guitar music is on the way out’.
Despite the possibility of predictions going spectacularly wrong, we’re pretty confident that this Big Deal with Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery is going to be wildly popular.
The deal is for eight people to enjoy a three course set menu in either the Chef’s Dining Room or the Snug in Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery.
Guests will be greeted with a glass of Prosecco and canapés followed by the three course chef’s menu and coffee with petits fours.
Included in the deal are four bottles of house wine to share.
One of Glasgow’s oldest restaurants, The Buttery is well known for the oak panelling, stained glass and marble bar which are the highlights of its stunning interior.
Since coming under the umbrella of the Two Fat Ladies restaurants, it has also developed a glowing reputation for great Scottish food.
The menu changes with the seasons and what is available at market but typical starters might be the warm smoked duck salad with a pomegranate vinaigrette or the oak smoked salmon and mini Thai fishcake with a spinach and lime purée.
Typical main courses are the fillets of sole with brown shrimp, lemon and flat leaf parsley butter or the pressed pork belly served with black pudding and Puy lentils.
Leave space for desserts such as the glazed lemon tart with lemongrass scented sorbet; the steamed pear and walnut pudding with caramel ice cream or the selection of pasteurised and unpasteurised cheeses and chutney accompanied by Arran oatcakes.
