Urban Bar and Brasserie

23-25 St Vincent Place, GLASGOW, G1 2DT

1 rosettes

This sleek and modern bar-brasserie has capitalised on the grandiose architecture of a former bank (the erstwhile Scottish HQ of the Bank of England, no less), throwing in brown leather banquettes and chairs, smartly laid tables, and huge canvases of modern art to bring vibrant splashes of colour into the mix. Add in black-clad staff wearing long white aprons, and a bustling vibe, and you might be in a classic Parisian brasserie. The kitchen knows its stuff, producing a menu of Scotland-meets-Mediterranean ideas sprinkled with Asian flavours - a spirited starter of fish soup spiked with ginger and prawn dumplings being typical of the style. Main courses can be as unreconstructed as Scotch beef sirloin with button mushrooms, pepper gravy and chips, or head into the francophile realms of duck confit with Toulouse sausage, borlotti beans and rosemary jus. To finish, the addition of lemon and thyme puts a novel spin on a crème brûlée.
