Stuck for an elegant Christmas present?
Step this way…
The waspish wit Dorothy Parker is said to have announced ‘Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content, and sufficient Champagne’.
May we suggest that you pinch the quote, write it in a Christmas card and post it along with a voucher for today’s Big Deal on a Champagne lunch for two at Hotel du Vin in One Devonshire Gardens.
If you are feeling very wicked then you could pretend you came up with the quote yourself.
The recipient gets an excellent present and you get to look as clever as you are generous.
Alternatively, just buy a few for yourself and ensure that the early part of 2015 gets off to sparkling start – whatever mischief the weather gets up to.
Available from early January to the end of March 2015, today’s Big Deal is for a superb, four course Champagne lunch at the gorgeous 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, as we noted, a splendid Christmas present.
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.
Available Monday to Saturday, 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 pork rillettes.
Mouth-watering main courses might feature pan-fried coley, warm potato salad, tomato and herb butter sauce or a dish of confit pork belly with bacon, braised lettuce and black pudding.
Desserts such as the blueberry and yoghurt panna cotta with a white chocolate biscuit or the sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream 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.
