urban bar and brasserie :-
FORMERLY the home of the Bank of England's Scottish HQ, this stunning brasserie brings a new air of elegance to the city.
The refurbished building provides a unique atmosphere where traditional cornicing and wood panels meet the contemporary design of a buzzing bar and restaurant.
Within months of opening the restaurant was awarded two AA rosettes - a coveted accolade rewarding excellence, innovation and great technical skills, together with top quality ingredients.
Executive chef and co-owner Derek Marshall heads up the kitchen with a menu featuring the best of classic-style dishes presented in his own inimitable contemporary style. The menu focuses on seasonal and, wherever possible, locally sourced products.
Typical dishes include grilled lemon sole with citrus creme fraiche, saddle of venison with port wine gravy and buttery mash, Granny Smith apple and pumpkin ravioli with parmesan cheese and dressed leaves.
Wedding Trivia: TIN CANS The tradition of tying tin cans to the back of the newlywed's vehicle originated long ago when items which would produce noise were tied to the back of the couple's carriage to scare away evil spirits.
