Revamp for Hutchesons
Rusk & Rusk have revamped and reopened their Merchant City venue Hutchesons and introduced Hutchesons The City Grill.
First opened in 2014, Hutchesons was renowned for its quality Scottish steak and seafood and the opulent interiors of the Grade A-listed building on Glasgow’s Ingram Street. The refresh has seen the interior of the striking double height dining room transformed while the ground level bar has become a boutique speakeasy known as 158 Club Lounge.
Rusk & Rusk co-founders James and Louise Rusk felt it was important to make the changes so that they didn’t stand still as a business.
Said Louise, “It’s all about making sure we never rest on our laurels. We’re passionate about architecture and design, and want to push the boundaries within our industry. With Hutchesons, it’s so important to us to make sure that we are giving this venue an identity that enhances it’s architectural footprint.”
The changes continue on the menu, where every cut of steak is now dry-aged on the bone for 35 days.
James explained, “Steak is what we do. It always has been. What we’ve done here is give ourselves an opportunity to further explore great beef and bring it to the people of Glasgow.”
Rusk & Rusk’s other successful Glasgow venues include The Spanish Butcher, on Miller Street, and The Butchershop Bar & Grill on Sauchiehall Street.
