Just like every year previously, we are determined to eat better in 2017 than we did in 2016.
And we are going to start with today’s Big Deal with Urban Bar and Brasserie on St Vincent Place, right in the heart of Glasgow.
The offer is for two people to have a glass of fizz plus three courses from their very appealing new 2017 menu.
It is valid to the end of February 2017.
This makes it a great way to get a few fantastic meals in the diary for the early part of 2017.
Of course, it would also make a stylish gift for a food-loving friend.
