When visiting a restaurant most of us go somewhere local or perhaps jump on a train to the next city. I can say however I have never boarded a plane and flew to a restaurant destination. This was indeed precisely what I did when renowned chef Nico Simeone flew myself and 69 other lucky passengers to Belfast to experience the latest addition to his Six by Nico restaurant portfolio. On the menu was the six course “Chippie” theme. One which I couldn’t wait to try.
Walking around the chilly streets of Glasgow in winter there are many tempting bars and restaurants beckoning you in with their warm, tempting food and appetising cocktails on offer. One such establishment which has been high on the list to try at The Gentleman Select is The Spiritualist Bar & Restaurant in which this month, I was very lucky to pop in and see the exquisite venue for myself.
In the past St Andrews was always a place I visited to play golf and why not, it is the home of golf after all with its incredible links courses presenting so many challenges. What I also love about the place is the narrow, cobbled little streets leading to quaint little pubs for drowning your sorrows after several wayward tee-shots during the day! Most recently however I visited St Andrews for a different reason. It was to check out the newly refurbished The Saint Bar & Kitchen, the ideal place to see what culinary delights this picturesque Scottish seaside town has to offer.
I think one of my favourite things, aside from clothing and a little bit of sunshine, is some really good food and drink. There are some great options out there at the minute with new spots opening almost daily. Here at The Gentleman Select, its always fun suggesting restaurants and bars to try and recently I was lucky enough to visit one such place I would thoroughly recommend, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen in Edinburgh.
