What they say:
One of Merchant City's most iconic venues is to be transformed into a decadent pleasure palace, to deliver an eating and drinking experience like no other. Restaurateur James Rusk takes over the A-listed Hutchesons' Hall on Ingram Street, following his successful work with The Butchershop Bar & Grill on Sauchiehall Street. The building came into being in 1802, but suffered significant water damage during a storm six years ago; the hall has since been granted £1.3 million for the restoration project. Rusk comments: "when I stepped foot inside the grand hall, I instantly knew that I wanted to sympathetically transform this magnificent landmark into a distinctive dining experience for all to enjoy".
