Bo & Birdy. That’s the name of The Blythswood Hotel’s re-opened £1M, 146-cover bar and restaurant 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 Matthewsm (pictured).
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.”
