Bo & Birdy at The Blythswood has recently announced it will be launching Glasgow’s first luxury grazing brunch, complete with pancake station.

The stylish restaurant, which underwent a £1.2m refurbishment in May and welcomed its first female executive chef, is offering customers a new brunch experience complete with a luxury bottomless buffet brunch and a pancake station with all the toppings.

For £50 per person, brunch goers can look forward to an arrival Glaswegin cocktail, one a la carte brunch dish, unlimited items from the buffet and a bottle of prosecco to share between two.

Launching on 29 September, the menu is set to include a range of meat, veggie and vegan options such as eggs shakshuka, Stornoway black pudding hash, seafood sliders and vegan breakfast burritos.

As well as this, the buffet spread will offer home-baked sweet and savoury treats including maple cupcakes and freshly baked breads.

If pancakes are your brunch go-to then create a perfect stack with the range of toppings – from cripsy, streaky bacon to fresh berries, cream and maple syrup.

Scottish produce takes centre stage in the seafood platter, which features Loch Fyne smoked salmon, potted shrimp and green lip mussels; and in the cheese selection.

Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel’s Executive Chef, Gillian Matthews said: “We are so excited to bring a classic brunch to Glasgow with a Bo & Birdy twist. All the dishes have been carefully planned and crafted to showcase the best ingredients Scotland has to offer.

She continued: “The seafood slider is definitely one of my favourites, three mini sliders: Lobster Roll, Fish Finger Sandwich and a Miso Salmon and Sesame Bun. Delicious!”

The bar will be serving up a selection of brunch cocktails, including the Bo & Birdy Bloody Mary, margaritas and the classic Bo & Birdy – a pink punch featuring Botanist Gin and Edinburgh Rhubarb and Ginger liqueur.

Murray Thomson, General Manager of Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel said: “Glasgow’s foodie scene is thriving, but we wanted to offer a new sophisticated way to brunch. This new concept will allow our guests to graze on the impressive spread, while enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of Bo & Birdy and chilling out with friends.”

Promising to be Glasgow’s newest Sunday hang-out, Glaswegian DJ Elisha McEleney will be on hand to provide the perfect soundtrack for the afternoon, spinning a mix of modern and disco hits.

If you can’t make the launch then the brunch will be back on Sunday 27 October and Sunday 1 December.
