It isn't always necessary to head out into the Highlands in search of country cuisine. Here in Glasgow's swinging West End, the Charalambous brothers bring it to the city doorstep, in a modern bistro setting where hanging baskets flank the door, and rows of tables at crimson banquettes form a long, informal space. The vegetarian dishes alone are inspired, offering salt-baked celeriac with onion and truffle, or spelt with Jerusalem artichoke, lettuce and Brinkburn goats’ cheese, for mains. Elsewhere, stimulating combinations distinguish the seasonally changing menus, perhaps Loch Fyne scallop with smoked eel, sour cabbage and apple, and then lamb with sprouting broccoli, anchovies and black olives, or stone bass with langoustine, clementine and pumpkin. For the seven-course taster, there are fish or meat alternatives at two stages, and caramelised whey with sea buckthorn, apple and fennel pollen makes for a thoroughly modern finale. A single cheese option might be Baron Bigod with potato bread and truffle honey. Speciality beers and a tempting list of imaginative cocktails supplement the commendable wine list.
