Originally launched in 2014 by James and Louise Rusk, the eye-catching, Grade A-listed building on Ingram Street has had a smart refurbishment.
The original Grand Hall dining room is now known as The City Grill while the cafe bar is now the speakeasy-style 158 Club Lounge. The Glenfarclas Private Dining Room remains as was.
Hutchesons: no resting on its laurels
‘It’s all about making sure we never rest on our laurels,’ says Louise Rusk. ‘We’re passionate about architecture and design, and want to push the boundaries within our industry. With Hutchesons, it’s so important to us to make sure that we are giving this venue an identity that enhances its architectural footprint.’
From house cuts to reserve cuts and signature cuts, the a la carte menu is packed with Scotch beef. The kitchen uses grass-fed Black Angus and Limousin cattle selected by John Gilmour butcher from Cairnhill Farm. Every cut of steak on offer is dry-aged on the bone for at least 35 days.
A newly launched guest cut range gives an opportunity to introduce different breeds of beef from the finest suppliers across the world.
Steak is what we do
James Rusk explains that ‘Steak is what we do. It always has been. What we’ve done here, is give ourselves an opportunity to further explore great beef and bring it to the people of Glasgow.’
However, if steak doesn’t float your boat then Scottish seafood is also prominent on the menus. The roasted Shetland monkfish tail and the baked Scottish lobster both stand out.
There are different offers available throughout the week.
