Love art and food' Indulge both passions with a trip to Collage, the only place to see the 'Alphabet Collection' by Sir Peter Blake, the man behind the cover of the Beatles' 1967 album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. As well as hinting at the restaurant's artistic element, the name of the restaurant reflects the diverse nature of the menu, which offers the diner a combination of British and European cuisine with a Scottish twist. Collage's captivating design concept is hardly a surprise when you consider that it's housed in the Radisson hotel, an award-winning architectural masterpiece in the centre of Glasgow. Seated in the restaurant, it was hard not to be distracted by the 26 paintings lining the walls, but my attention was soon brought back to the task in hand when I was handed the menu.

To begin I chose wild mushroom soup, served with truffle cream - incredibly tasty with a deep, earthy flavour. My companion chose a rillette of ham houghs, flavoured with juniper berries and served with glazed beetroot. Next I went for tian of lamb shank with aubergine caviar, olive oil mash and a rosemary jus, while my guest chose the red pepper and spinach spring roll, served with a tangy pear and cardamom chutney. Choosing a dessert proved more than a little difficult, with delights on the menu like citrus creme brûlée, served with sesame seed tuiles, and sablée of poached pear with mascarpone and stem ginger syrup. Eventually I made my choice - mango Bavarian cream with a wonderfully sharp passion fruit jelly and a delicious fruit coulis - and I was not disappointed. My friend had left her sweet tooth at home, and ordered a selection of Scottish cheeses served with homemade chutney and oatcakes.

Service in the restaurant is informal yet professional, and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. So, if you love enjoying homely, comforting food in stylish surroundings, you can't go wrong with Collage. Fashionable, arty, yet without pretension, and with capacity for up to 100 guests, Collage is an excellent place to unwind and give your tastebuds a treat.
