The opening of The Chophouse Brasserie at Merchant Square in the Merchant City brings 1930s New York-style dining into the very heart of Glasgow’s cultural, fashion and food quarter.
Serving up a mouth-watering selection of fresh, home-cooked food at affordable prices, The Chophouse Brasserie is a classic steakhouse and brasserie for discerning diners.
The Chophouse Brasserie proprietor Julie Walters said: “Having identified a need in Glasgow for a classic steakhouse and brasserie combining the atmosphere of 1920’s and 1930’s New York combined with the contemporary tastes of today, The Chophouse Brasserie opens in Merchant Square with the aim of providing quality food at an affordable price in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
“Serving only certified Angus Beef steaks and local farm products, including veal, lamb and pork, our menu also includes fresh seafood. All our steaks, sauces, salads and fish dishes are freshly prepared in our kitchen. We serve only the freshest vegetables available and offer an extensive wine list and local beers on tap.”
The Chophouse Brasserie’s signature grill features fresh cuts of prime Scottish beef, pork and lamb, seasoned and grilled for real flavour. The beef cuts are Angus rump, sirloin, Porterhouse and fillet whilst the pork and lamb offerings are veal cutlet and Ayrshire gammon steak.
Starters include: moules mariniere; chicken liver pate; soup of the day; king prawn cocktail; Cajun marinated chicken skewer; pan-fried mushrooms; smoked haddock and bacon fishcakes; sautéed king prawns; haggis neeps and tatties and ‘fall off the bone’ baby back ribs.
The latter is also available as a main course – slow cooked and coated in a choice of one of three glazes: piri piri, BBQ or honey and mustard – as is The Chophouse classic beef short ribs, slow braised in a secret stock for full flavour.
The brasserie section, meanwhile, offers: rack of lamb; lamb shank; beef bourguignon; chicken Balmoral; beef olives; braised venison sausages; braised popeseye and pork chops.
The Chophouse’s menu also offers a selection of tasty Aberdeen Angus beef burgers made with premium cuts of meat and served with chunky skin on Maris Piper chips, as well as a choice of skewers and a fish and vegetarian section offering beer battered fish and chips, grilled salmon and stuffed Portobello mushroom.
Located within Merchant Square, once part of the old Glasgow Fruit Market, diners at The Chophouse Brasserie can enjoy the warmth and comfort of the Victorian courtyard that brings the outside in under a glittering canopy of stars.
