According to some, numerology is the belief that certain numbers can unlock the secrets of the universe.
We’re not claiming divine powers for today’s Big Deal at Perth’s 63 Tay Street but with a six course tasting menu on offer for two people in a two AA Rosette restaurant, the numbers certainly add up to a tasty offer.
Located in the centre of historic Perth and overlooking the River Tay, we can safely say 63 Tay Street is more than the sum of its parts.
Led by the locally-born Graeme Pallister, a Masterchef of Great Britain, 63 Tay Street has earned numerous awards and accolades since opening in 2007.
Two AA Rosettes; an Eat Scotland Gold Award and a Scottish Restaurant Award for Customer Service are just some of them.
They are all a result of Chef Pallister’s guiding principles that food should be local, honest and simple.
Fillet steak lunch
Available noon-1.30pm, Thursday to Saturday, the lunch offer is for two people to each have a succulent fillet steak main course, cooked to order.
A chilled glass of house Champagne will help you savour the top quality steak.
Tasting Menu dinner
Option 2 is for Chef Pallister’s signature tasting menu.
A set, six course menu designed to demonstrate the kitchen’s many skills, this gastronomic feast features:
Pressed, soy braised pork with salad teriyaki and apple ginger purée
Smoked haddock tartare with bacon and cockle dressing
Guinea Fowl Chasseur with spring vegetables, spiced Ratte potatoes and smoked sausage
Selection of Scottish Cheeses with grapes, quince and handmade oatcakes
Grown-up hot chocolate with a vanilla sugar doughnut and chocolate ice cream
Bookings for the tasting menu dinner can be made 6.30pm-8.30pm, Tuesday to Friday.
63 Tay Street has the numbers on its side when it comes to TripAdvisor reviews. At the time of writing, 105 people have rated the restaurant and 96 of them have reckoned that it is excellent or very good.
This is what one recent diner had to say:
‘Simply exquisite… Unlike many restaurants, 63 Tay Street prepare their dishes using local produce, which is very important, and I admire that in a restaurant. I have dined in this restaurant on many occasions, and would definitely recommend you dine here if you wish to celebrate an event, as the food/ambience/waitresses are top class. If you wish to have a meal to remember, you must visit 63 Tay Street.
The decor is simplistic, and the lighting of the restaurant is perfect (not too bright or too dark). This restaurant is not particularly big, which adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Also, this restaurant over-looks the River Tay, which is lovely. I look forward to dining at 63 Tay Street in the near future.’
