February 1st saw the grand reopening of a George Square establishment: Browns Brasserie and Bar has had a major revamp and they can’t wait for you to pop in and enjoy the result!

We explored the new-look restaurant and had a catch up with manager Graham to give you the lowdown on what to expect from your next visit.

History

Browns was born in Bath in 1973 and the Glasgow counterpart moved into the old post office on George Square in 2011. It established itself as a place for meeting for long breakfasts, business lunches, catch ups with friends and family dinners, as well as having a cocktail menu guaranteed to add a bit of glamour to any evening. ‘We want it to be a place for anyone to come in to relax, and to celebrate’ says Graham,

Menu

Part of the revamp includes a renewed commitment to keeping ahead of the restaurant trends and ensuring that reflects in the menu. There are brunch, afternoon tea and a la carte menus to name just a few, not to mention the ‘quest for great tasting beef’ which sees Browns’ involvement in every stage of the development of their tender beef specials, from field to plate. Graham’s current favourite is the Sea Bass, pan-fried and served above a seafood stew. We are treated to some canapés during our visit: smoked salmon on sweet potato and bites of lemon cheesecake which are a tasty and sophisticated sign of what to expect on the full menu.

Atmosphere

Everything has been updated, down to the lights and the deco dotted around the booths and the bar. A new bar now takes pride of place down the stairs just by the entrance, affording a new, private and impressive space for events and occasions, or just for a more secluded spot to sit and watch people pass on the street above. The colour scheme is muted and calming, allowing for the metallic accents in the lights, bar design and candles dotting the room to glint.

Want to see for yourself? Get in touch with them here to book your visit. We’d especially recommend snapping up one of the last tickets for their Taster Menu Night: on February 8th you can enjoy two courses with a glass of wine for the tiny price of £14.95. A fraction of the value  of the meal, consider it an extra part of the warm welcome extended from Browns in all its new finery.
