An event to celebrate a popular Aberdeen restaurant will take place next month.
French restaurant Gerard’s closed down around 20 years ago and was situated on the city’s Chapel Street, where Howies is now based.
Grand daughter of owner Gerard Fletcher, Danielle Fletcher-Herd has organised the event which will take place at the The Marcliffe Hotel on Saturday May 18. The evening not only celebrate the former restaurant, but also raise funds for Aberdeen children’s charity Abernecessities which Danielle launched last month.
Danielle said she wanted to celebrate Gerard’s despite it being closed because she finds that people still talk about the eatery today.
She said: “It’s been around 20 years since my grandparents closed their restaurant and still to this day people are talking about it. Even people from my generation like my friends and others remember how good it was.
“It was a really significant place and for people to be talking about it still, that’s a huge testament to how many people loved it.
“It was important to me to mark the restaurant with an occasion as Gerard’s was a big part of Aberdeen’s dining scene and this evening is a great way to do that and to have my grandparents involved has been fantastic.”
Guests will receive fizz on arrival from 7pm, a three-course meal with old favourites as well as music from Graham Geddes who used to perform at the restaurant’s Dine and Dance evenings. Peter Mitchell is the compere for the evening.
Tickets cost £100 per person with tables of 10 available to purchase. They can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
