One of Glasgow’s oldest and most iconic restaurants – The Baby Grand – is celebrating its 34th birthday by giving customers the chance to eat for free for the next 34 years.
The restaurant is inviting Glasgow foodies to take a trip down memory lane, asking them to submit their favourite memories of the city from the last three decades. The best story will then be rewarded with free food until November 2052.
The Baby Grand first opened its doors in 1984 and has been a much-loved feature of the city’s vibrant food and drink ever since.
As it celebrates more than three decades of serving great ‘scran’ to the people of Glasgow, the restaurant is now gearing up for the next course, investing £250,000 to renovate and expand the premises.
The classic piano bar now boasts an onsite deli serving fresh salads and American-inspired sandwiches, and is home to Scotland’s only vertical rotisserie making it one of the most appealing lunch spots in the city.
Billy McAneney, co-owner of The Baby Grand, said: “There has been lots of change in the city since The Baby Grand opened its doors in 1984. The Glasgow that we all know, and love is now seen as one of the most vibrant cities in the world, home to an abundance of innovative eateries and the even one of Europe’s hippest neighbourhoods. But as the city has evolved, so many great restaurants, bars and cafes have closed their doors.
“One of the reasons The Baby Grand has stood the test of time, is because we have loyal customer base who have continued to support us over the years and this is our way of thanking them for coming back time and time again.”
A total of 34 meals will be provided to the winner, with a maximum of one meal per month. They will be provided to one customer only and are limited to one main dish per sitting. Drinks of any kind and supplements are excluded.
The company said that all meals must be redeemed by 2052 and it reserves the right to rescind the prize in face of unforeseen circumstances.
