The restaurant will offer a 120-cover bar area where guests can enjoy drinks and snacks seven days a week as well as an 85-cover restaurant, which will feature its own 45-cover terrace.

A private dining space for up to 25 people will also be available to book for private events.

The kitchen will be headed up by director of food John Molloy, who has worked with the group for five years.

Some standout dishes set to feature include fresh Scottish lobster, French onion soup, beef bourguignon and confit duck leg lasagne.

Molloy said: “Maison will be a game changer in the city centre – a brasserie perfectly tailored to the all-day dining needs of Glasgow.

“The food has a classic French brasserie feel to it, while taking inspiration from our sister restaurant Glaschu, and really utilising the outstanding Scottish produce we have available on our doorstep.

“I can’t wait to open our doors and for people to see what we’ve been working on.”

Open from 10am daily, Maison will also offer freshly baked pastries and premium Italian coffee as well as serving up a Sunday lunch.

General manager Clare Johnstone added: “I cannot wait to share Maison by Glaschu with the people of Glasgow.

“We promise a culinary experience that is both timeless and innovative. Maison believes in delivering more than just great service – we aim to create memorable experiences for all.”
