What it is good for?
The restaurant has recently been launched and head chef Jim Kerr (surely no relation? Ed) is well known in Glasgow for his sashimi - raw fish. He seems to create amazing flavours with the most basic ingredients.
A special starter is sashimi of seabass and halibut with 'yuzu' - yuzu is a fruit that looks like an ugly lemon but has to be bought in from abroad. The main courses are a bit more Scottish with lamb, guinea fowl and so on.
Who's the boss?
Glasgow restaurateur Alan Tomkins owns the restaurant, part of OurVenues Group.
Go for the lunch/pre-theatre menu. It's excellent value. Book in advance if you can. Take your autograph book - it's now a well-known hangout for Scottish celebrities.
What's the damage?
The lunch and pre-theatre menu is great value - two courses are £12 or three courses are £16. The a la carte is a bit more expensive, but two people can dine on the £50 for two with wine menu mid-week.
