Flack: (Saving) on expenses - Dining Room, Glasgow

Reviewer: Laura Campbell, managing director, Aura PR (Scotland).

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.

Signature dish

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.

Tips please

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.
