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: MOST EXPENSIVE DRESS Wedding dresses can make a major dent in your budget, but however much you spend it will be nothing compared to the outfit created by French designer Helene Gainville. Estimated to be worth a cool £3.5 million, the dress is embroidered with diamonds mounted on platinum. Not the sort of thing you would want to put in the attic after the wedding day.
