Built from the solid granite that gives the city its moniker, the Aberdeen branch of the Malmaison group is suitably dashing, with boutique allure and a cool industrial-chic finish. The brasserie is at the heart of the operation, with an open-to-view kitchen revealing the Josper grill, the source of a good deal of what follows. Start with ahi tuna tartare with avocado, wasabi, pickled ginger and soy dressing, followed by something meaty from that Josper: a perfectly timed rib-eye steak perhaps, served with whichever sauce floats your boat. Other options include roast Atlantic cod with shellfish vinaigrette and samphire. Finish with lemon meringue cheesecake.
