Yesterday we went to Rogano in Exchange Place in Glasgow and had the pre-theatre menu which has the offer of a free starter or dessert included in the price of your main if you leave before 7.45. This allows them to fill the cafe twice over in the evenings and is a small price to pay, literally and metaphorically.

We had two cocktails – a Bellini and a Margarita – and sparkling water. The menu has changed slightly since we were last there and sirloin is no longer on offer. Rib eye is a modern favourite but there is nothing to beat a juicy thick sirloin in my opinion. My companion had the Chicken Liver & Foie Gras Parfait with Arran oatcakes and apple & pear purée. We both plumped for the salmon special which came with crushed potatoes and tomatoes roasted on the vine. I had the Chocolate & Orange Brownie with mascarpone ice cream. With coffee, tea and macaroons to follow the entire bill came to around £60. The service was friendly and efficient apart from a small error of serving the coffee before the dessert rather than as requested as an accompaniment. The art deco look continues to enhance the ambiance and I will definitely go back.
