Review on The Honours at Malmaison Glasgow
Michelin-starred chef Martin Wishart has opened a second The Honours restaurant as part of the multi-million pound refurbishment of Malmaison Glasgow. A converted Greek Orthodox church is the stunning setting for the Glasgow branch of the national Malmaison hotel group. Once a fashionable place of worship, it now boasts ornate wrought ironwork on the staircase and a spherical chandelier at the entrance. The restaurant's contemporary décor is similar to its older sibling, decked out in a palette of deep clarets, golds with ermine colours on the wall reflecting the colours of the 15th century Scottish regalia and crown jewels, from which the brasserie takes its name. There's luxurious semi-circular banquette seating and chairs set against simply laid tables.
Andrew Greenan has been appointed to take the helm of the kitchen in his first Head Chef role, having joined the restaurant from his post at The Honours in Edinburgh. Serving modern French dishes with a focus on meat cooked on the Josper Grill, products are sourced from carefully selected suppliers including Donald Russell's beef farm in Aberdeenshire. To begin you could choose crab cappuccino, rouillé, croûtons and parmesan before a main course of ox cheeks a la bordelaise served with pommes purée or from the sea there's sautéed fillets of John Dory, leeks with mussels, curry and Sauternes sauce. To finish with something sweet, there's options such as chocolate parfait, pear mousse and sorbet with amaretto biscuit or you could opt for the soufflé of the day.
