There is a time for Heston’s dry ice concoctions and Gordon’s three star cooking.
There may even be a place for the more show off inventions of the MasterChef kitchens but, sometimes, keeping it simple is the best plan.
Today’s Big Deal on a bar meal and drink at the Georgics Bar in Glasgow city centre makes a virtue of simplicity.
Without wishing to sound in any way like a certain Russian meerkat, today’s offer with the Georgics Bar is deliciously simple.
For £7.50, one person can enjoy the chef’s soup of the day with crusty bread and either a refreshing pint of Tennent’s or a 175ml glass of Hardy’s The Riddle Shiraz-Cabernet or, for the white wine drinker, a glass of Hardy’s Chardonnay-Semillon.
The deal also includes a choice between three gourmet sandwiches:
Club sandwich: three slices of toasted bread, filled with bacon, chicken, cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise, served with French fries.
Ham and Cheese Toastie: honey roast ham and cheddar cheese on a toasted white or brown bread sandwich, served with salad and crisps.
Cheese and Tomato Toastie: cheddar cheese and sliced tomato on a toasted white or brown bread sandwich, served with salad and salted crisps.
City centre bar
Part of the Millennium Hotel, the Georgics Bar is a friendly, informal venue and a great spot to people watch; meet up with mates or catch the match.
With conservatory views of the magnificent George Square combined with a buzzing pub style atmosphere, it’s is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Great lunch idea
The Big Deal is valid Monday to Friday, noon-9pm, which makes it perfect for lunch or an after work drink and bite to eat. Lots of 5pm reviewers have rated the Georgics Bar and, in the spirit of this offer, we’ll reprint one of the simpler reviews:
‘We will return. Good food in lovely surroundings.’
