Bo & Birdy. That’s the name of The Blythswood Hotel’s new £1m
146-cover bar and restaurant that re-opens this month after being
closed for three months following the acquisition of the hotel by IHG.
Steering the ship is Scotland’s first female 5-star hotel exec head
chef, Gillian Matthews.
GM Murray Thomson told DRAM, “Gillian
has been an integral part of the team at The Blythswood Square
Hotel for seven years, and we are delighted our new restaurant, Bo
& Birdy will be launching with her at the helm. Gillian and the team
have been working closely with suppliers when designing the menu,
to ensure Bo & Birdy showcases the best tastes of Scotland, whilst
supporting local produce.”
He continued, “As well as upgrading the
restaurant, the kitchen has been modernised to reflect the new
culinary direction and major changes front-of-house. It has been fun
working with our suppliers on this part of the project.”
