Singing the blues was the preferred profession of Peg Leg Howell, Blind Lemon Jefferson and the inexplicably less successful Tone Deaf Thomas.
Take up today’s Big Deal with Collage restaurant at Radisson Blu and the blues will be the last thing on your mind.
Instead you will be singing the praises of dishes such as roasted tomato and lobster bisque or Barbary duck breast served with Savoy cabbage and pancetta, white bean purée and game jus.
‘Praise be and pass the fork,’ as Peg Leg never said.
Handily located in Glasgow city centre, Collage is a colourful restaurant filled with artwork by Peter Blake, the man who designed The Beatle’s iconic Sergeant Pepper’s album cover.
The kitchen team are just as nifty when it comes to making the food on the plate look as pretty as a picture.
Today’s Big Deal is for three courses plus a side dish from the a la carte menu. The menu changes regularly but typical starters include such masterpieces as the home cured Scottish salmon served with potato salad, beetroot and a fennel dressing or the classic steamed mussels in garlic, white wine and cream.
Main courses might feature creations such as pan-fried monkfish, braised baby leeks, roasted shallots and a fish cream reduction or artichoke and ricotta cheese ravioli served with wilted greens, sage cream and parmesan shavings.
The choice of desserts could include iced mango and raspberry parfait with passion fruit syrup or perhaps a rhubarb fool with vanilla cream & ginger shortbread.
The kitchen also serves a range of Scotch steaks which attract a £5 supplement.
