Our dictionary defines the word ‘urbane’ as meaning ‘courteous and refined in manner’.
Add in ‘no mean shakes in the kitchen’ and it is a description which would also fit Urban Bar and Brasserie on St Vincent Place.
Head Chef David Clunas heads up the kitchen and serves classic dishes presented in his own inimitable and contemporary style.
The menu focuses on seasonal and, wherever possible, locally sourced products.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a three course meal from the seasonal autumn menu in Urban Bar and Brasserie, one of Glasgow’s more sophisticated restaurants.
City centre elegance
Once home to the Bank of England’s Scottish HQ, Urban Bar and Brasserie has retained its dashing good looks.
Decked out with wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, it is rather an elegant city centre spot.
The offer is for two people to each have a starter, main course and dessert from the following
Soup du jour
Smooth parfait of chicken livers with plum chutney and oatcakes
Prawn cocktail with chilli and lime
Roquefort, French bean and Granny Smith salad with walnut dressing (V)
Crab linguine with citrus oil, chilli and rocket
Fillet of sea bass on gem salad, with watermelon and goat’s cheese
Lemon and garlic marinated chicken with cous cous and tomato oil
Flat cap, red onion and Comté tart with red pepper cream (V)
Sirloin steak with pepper sauce, button mushrooms and fries (£6 supplement)
Roquefort and Comté with apricot chutney
Caramel and apple crème brulée
Walnut brownie with peanut butter ice cream
Golden syrup sponge with vanilla ice cream
The Urban Bar and Brasserie won two AA Rosettes within months of opening but the critics that really matter also love it.
At the time of writing, more than 800 people have booked meals at Urban Bar and Brasserie through 5pm. Together, they have awarded the restaurant a fantastic combined score of 4.4/5.
This review was left recently by a diner on Urban Bar and Brasserie’s 5pm entry. It is brief and to the point:
‘Great food. First class meal. Excellent value for money.’
Autumn is harvest time
Available Sunday to Friday, this offer would be perfect for a working lunch, pre-theatre meal; afternoon shopping break; a romantic night out or a lazy Sunday afternoon lunch with friends or family.
Autumn is harvest time when Scotland’s natural larder is at its finest.
Enjoy all that it has to offer with the seasonal menu available on today’s Big Deal with Urban Bar and Brasserie.
