Tim Berners-Lee (bright lad, invented the Internet) is quoted as saying, ‘Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch’.
Fair enough but it does make you suspect that Mr Berners-Lee has never had lunch at the Grill Room at the Square.
Award winning restaurant
Today’s Big Deal is for one person to enjoy lunch, Monday to Friday, at the Grill Room overlooking Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow city centre.
Known for its fantastic service and glamorous decor, the buzzy Grill Room is part of the exclusive 29 private members’ club and has scooped numerous awards including an Eat Scotland Silver Award and the coveted Daily Record’s Hot Plate Award.
It is a popular lunch spot for Glasgow’s movers and shakers; its business community and shoppers taking a break.
If you haven’t been before then this Big Deal is the perfect introduction.
As well as a glass of wine, the deal is for your choice from the following main courses:
Wild mushroom risotto cake with grilled courgettes, poached egg and tomato dressing
Fresh market dish of the day
Cajun spiced salmon fillet with mange tout, tomato, pine kernels and lemon
Coq au vin: chicken braised in red wine with bacon lardons, mushrooms and onions, served with potato gnocchi
Lamb casserole with root vegetables and creamed potatoes
Char-grilled bacon loin steak with sauté potatoes and peppercorn sauce

‘The weather was below freezing tonight and pretty miserable outside. The restaurant was cosy with a great ambience overlooking the fairy-lit square definitely a good place to be. Food excellent, well mannered servers, the tablet and homemade shortbread a nice touch.’ Rating 4.8/5
‘29 never fails to deliver superb food and a delightful atmosphere.’ Rating 5/5
You’ve read what we have to say. You’ve scanned the reviews. What’s it to be?
