Any day now, the headlines will start trumpeting that such and such a day is Blue Monday, Black Wednesday or Terrible Thursday – supposedly the worst day of the year.
Funny they never tell us which is supposedly the best day of the year…
Happily, we have the solution to any post-festive blues.
Today’s Big Deal on steak frites at Malmaison on West George Street is the perfect way to lift the spirits; put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.
The Brasserie at Glasgow’s Mal is an atmospheric spot – all vaulted ceilings and cosy candles.
With today’s offer, it would be the perfect location for a stylish lunch, relaxing after work dinner or convenient pre-theatre meal – the King’s Theatre is just a short stroll away.
The offer is for two people to each enjoy a delicious steak and chips from the grill section of the Brasserie’s a la carte menu.
The steak is a 250g full face rump steak selected for its deep, savoury flavour.
As well as a side salad to share, each diner can choose a mouth-watering sauce to accompany their steaks. Options include red wine and shallot, garlic butter, pepper sauce, blue cheese butter or the ever popular Béarnaise.
To drink, diners can each have a glass of house wine; a schooner of lager; soft drink or a Bellini.
Vouchers are valid from noon to 2.30pm, Monday to Saturday, and 5.30pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday.
The Brasserie at Malmaison is highly rated by 5pm users with over 600 people giving it a combined rating of 4.1/5.

‘Great food served here and proximity to Sauchiehall Street makes it a superb stop before an afternoon shopping.’
Snap up today’s Big Deal and laugh in the face of winter’s storms. Few things make the world a more cheery place than the prospect of a mighty fine steak dinner.
