Finnieston will be home to a new restaurant given over to one dish – Chateaubriand.
Chateau-X will open to the public at 10 Claremont Street in Finnieston on 8 December.
The concept is the idea of chef Nico Simeone and his Simeone Group – the team behind Six By Nico.
The new restaurant’s locally-sourced beef steaks will be accompanied by an ever-changing menu of sides.
Chateaubriand will be priced at £30 for two.
Nico Simeone founder of Six By Nico said: “From the time we started talking about launching the Chateau-X restaurant idea, we knew everything had to revolve around the perfectly executed Chateaubriand.
“We’ve taken this much-loved restaurant classic and improved it with seasonally-inspired sides and attention to every detail that will set us apart from the competition.”
Chateau-X will source its meat from John Gilmour Butchers, based in Tranent and Cairnhill Farm in Girvan.
Peter Borgan of Urban Grocer will work with the team to select seasonal vegetables for the restaurant’s ever evolving sides menu.
The Chateau-X brand was first launched online during lockdown last year as part of the HOME-X delivery offering.
More than 10,000 boxes of steak and sides were ordered by home diners.
Celebrity customers included Comedian Jack Whitehall, Reality TV Star Ferne McCann and TV Presenter Jenni Falconer.
The launch menu for the restaurant will consist of a 500g Chateaubriand and a choice of six sides.
The first sides menu kicks off with: Beef Dripping Rooster Chips; Barbecue Hispi Cabbage with Black Garlic and Aged Ewes Cheese; Mac & Cheese Croquettes with Chipotle Emulsion; Roasted Sprouted Broccoli, Buttermilk and Tarragon dressing; Bone Marrow & Oxtail with parsley crust; and a Classic Caesar Salad with Aged parmesan.
Diners will also sample warm sourdough bread from Soja Bakery, whipped butter and gordal olives.
Soft-serve ice cream will be available for afters.
Nico added: “The success of the Chateau-X brand so far has all been driven digitally but now it’s time to bring the brand to life with our first restaurant in our home city of Glasgow.
“We are confident the launch will capture the hearts and taste buds of meat loving Scots and I hope our accessible price point ensures this dining experience is accessible to many.”
Chateau-X will be split over two levels offering 60 covers and will open for lunch and dinner as well as breakfast on Saturday & Sunday.
The restaurant will have an informal and relaxed atmosphere with walk-in diners and bookings both welcomed.
The decor is simple and chic with paired back and minimal furniture combined with calming earthy shades adorning the walls with exposed brick and wooden panelling adding texture.
