Happy Easter! Today’s post is a restaurant one. March’s Date Night took us to the West – to Chelsea Market in Finnieston. I believe Chelsea Market opened around December 2016. I can’t quite remember where I heard about it but the vintage-come-bistro aesthetic caught my eye, so we checked out the menu. There’s a classic selection of main dishes available – steak, lamb, shellfish, poultry. The menu nods to the vegetarians among us with two options, but mainly caters to an omnivore-friendly audience.
We opted for the Peterhead Hake, and the Red Deer – how Scottish – with a side of winter buttered greens. The portions are small but perfectly formed, and very delicious.
The service was super friendly and efficient. Complimentary bread is always a nice touch, particularly when served with some oil and seeds. Very unique, and a lovely little starter. We also chose some cocktails to pair with our meal. I can’t find their cocktail menu online but they have a great selection. The bar area looked like a great place to sit and have a drink/catch up too; they have a lot on offer.
We finished our meal with the Crème Caramel which was beautiful. It came served with salted oats and smoked raisins – a perfect example of how Chelsea Market introduce a unique twist to a classic dish. Overall a great experience – the restaurant is not too crowded, service and food were both great, and the prices reasonable for the quality. Highly recommended. And thanks for reading.
