Elton has decreed that we can’t wear D&G; digging out a swimming pool in the basement is unspeakably vulgar and owning a superyacht is ruinously expensive for even the wealthiest oligarch.
Since when did decadence become so difficult?
Happily, today’s Big Deal is as easy as it is indulgent.
A sumptuous four course lunch for two accompanied by a cheeky glass of Champagne in One Devonshire Gardens, this is decadence at its most delicious.
Available Monday to Saturday, today’s Big Deal is for a superb, four course Champagne lunch at the five star Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens.
An oak-panelled oasis in Glasgow’s West End, the bistro at One Dev is an elegant setting for a sumptuous lunch.
This offer is ideal for a romantic meal, a business lunch, a top notch shopping break or simply because you fancy a treat.
Recently awarded a third AA Rosette, the bistro at One Devonshire Gardens has long been a leading light on Glasgow’s restaurant scene.
Fresh, seasonal and locally sourced are the key words in the kitchen here and the quality of Scotland’s natural larder shines through on the plate.
This luxurious offer is for you and your guest to enjoy a four course lunch from the 5pm Big Deal menu at One Devonshire Gardens.
A glass of chilled Lombard HdV Cuvée Brut Champagne will help your meal to sparkle.
Specific dishes will depend on the best ingredients available that day but typical starters might be the salmon gravadlax with a honey mustard dressing or the ham hock and puy lentil terrine with pickled vegetables and toasted country bread.
Mouth-watering main courses might feature seared coley, warm potato salad and sauce vierge or Toulouse sausage, braised puy lentils and carrot purée.
Desserts such as the Devonshire sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream or the chocolate and mixed berry with raspberry sorbet will bring your meal to a deliciously sweet end.
The fourth course will come in the form of either an intermediate or pre dessert such as mango mousse with coconut.
