If you’re Maria from the Sound of Music then whiskers on kittens and warm woollen mittens are among your favourite things.
Fair enough. It’s just that we prefer a mouth-watering two course dinner accompanied by a bottle of something cold and fizzy.
Discover some new favourite things with today’s Big Deal on a two course dinner for two with a bottle of cava at Central Market.
A smart, stylish café, restaurant and bar on Bell Street in the Merchant City, Central Market is an elegant, airy space with a mezzanine dining level and soaring windows.
Since opening in 2012, it has gained an AA Rosette and has also been included in several guide books including Michelin.
Modern, seasonal and Scottish
The food at Central Market is based on locally sourced, fresh produce. You can give it a whirl with today’s Big Deal.
Available 5pm to 9.30pm on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the offer is for two people to have a starter and main course from the 5pm Big Deal menu.
As well as tea or coffee to finish, the deal includes a chilled bottle of La Escapada cava to share.
Exact dishes may vary slightly but your 5pm Big Deal menu at Central Market will be very similar to this:
Soup – spiced bean, lime, crème fraiche
Sardines – served with jerk sauce, lime
Beef brisket – served with Baby gem and lovage mayo
Pan-fried sea bass – served with shellfish butter, purple sprouting broccoli
Spinach & ricotta ravioli – served with kale, Berkswell cheese
Venison sausage – served with sautéed mushroom, beetroot and heritage potatoes
