Cafe Rouge Re-designed Bistro

Café Rouge will be unveiling a beautifully redesigned bistro over at Highcross Shopping Centre on April 24th and a brand new menu as well.

Café Rouge’s signature brand of relaxed, authentic French dining coupled with down-to- earth, friendly service make Leicester’s local bistro the perfect place for business breakfasts, impromptu lunches, special occasion dinners and everything in between. The space, which includes al fresco-style terrace dining, has been lovingly rejuvenated with a gorgeous new interior design… All shall be revealed on April 24th!

As well as the new look, the bistro is pleased to present a brand new menu, featuring the most authentic and classic dishes yet. Executive Chef Duncan McEwan has explored 25 years of Café Rouge menus and French cuisine – from their debut offering in 1989 right through to current French food trends. The selection even includes a rather special appearance from one of France’s most famous culinary exports – the snail - with Ragoût D’Escargots a new, must-try dish!

The sensational new-look restaurant will be open from breakfast (think Eggs Benedict, warm baked chouquettes and truffled mushrooms on toast!) through lunches (including Menu Rapide – perfect for business meets) to dinner or just after work drinks (perhaps over a ‘plateau a parteger’).

To complement their new menu, CafÄ— Rouge has also collaborated closely with Bibendum, who are dedicated to supplying the finest wines from across the world. Together they have introduced an outstanding wine list featuring a selection of terrific wines that offer great quality and value, including De Castellane Champagne, Alsace Pinot Gris from Jean Biecher and Crozes Hermitage from Paul Jaboulet.

The Leicester General Manager, Ian Hill said, “Customers can expect a dramatically different interior for the restaurant – one that we think they’ll love! And with a completely new, best ever menu to unveil too, this is an exciting time for Café Rouge Leicester. We’re over 25 years in the business and this feels like a great way to celebrate that!”
