Beautifully restored building with breathtaking domed ceiling serving an eclectic mix of upmarket Scottish staples and exotic world food.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
The Corinthian Club is an impressive example of how beautiful Victorian-era buildings in the Merchant City have been thoughtfully restored to their former glory – in this case evolving to become a chic restaurant, bar, casino and nightclub. The breathtaking domed ceiling, complete with ornate detail, gives an opulent feeling to the brasserie, where the menu is an eclectic mix of Scottish staples and more exotic cuisines – with dishes coming universally well presented by polite, friendly waiting staff. Halloumi to start is full of tasty umami flavours thanks to the chargrilling, while the haggis fritters are sizzling and nicely spicy beside the accompanying creamy mustard sauce. For the main event sea bream fillet is well handled, the accompanying ragù is robust, with pulses and sweet cherry tomatoes complementing the fish nicely. Monkfish tail is meaty and full of flavour, and, in keeping with the opulence of the venue, includes potatoes flavoured with truffle. Complete with a fabulous Espresso Martini from the flashy cocktail menu, dining here is a very chic affair.
