11 Exchange Place, GLASGOW, G1 3AN
Glasgow's longest-serving restaurant became an octogenarian in 2015, having been provisioning the city with fish and shellfish specialities since Cunard's luxury liner Queen Mary began its life on the Clyde. The perfectly preserved art deco interior is a delight in an era of stripped-to-the-bone minimalism, and the place is run with old-school Gallic courtesy and correctness. An often-starry clientele loyally returns for platters of fruits de mer, langoustines in garlic butter, and expertly rendered thermidor, the richly sauced lobster returned to its shell for gratinating, served with shoestring fries. There are inspired meat dishes too, not least an autumn starter of roast grouse on Puy lentils and girolles in balsamic jus, or the main-course venison loin wrapped in pancetta with its own pasty and pickled red cabbage. Tarte Tatin is done with as much panache as it is on the Boulevard St-Michel, its perfectly caramelised topping and sauce offset with subtle cinnamon ice cream, or there may be white chocolate cheesecake in a coulis of Perthshire raspberries.
