Rejuvenated Café Rouge flagship arrives in the City

Oct 30th

Café Rouge, Britain’s best-loved bistro since 1989, has completed a £500,000 refurbishment of its flagship site opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral. The largest scheme to be undertaken by the brand as part of its national rejuvenation programme, Café Rouge St. Paul’s now features a beautiful mural, specially commissioned for the 182-cover restaurant inside the magnificent Condor House.

To complement the refined interior, Café Rouge has launched its ‘Best of the Best’ menu, which is available at every one of the company’s UK bistros.
Brand director Georgia Hall said: “The new menu is a reflection of the brand’s finest moments over the past 26 years with an added contemporary spin. Our executive chef Duncan McEwan has blended the beloved recipes of our long-standing customers with new and classic French influences.

“Over two thirds of Café Rouge bistros have now been rejuvenated with classic and authentic interiors to complement our delicious food and wine. With its iconic location and grand scale, St. Paul’s was a unique opportunity to really push the boat out and create a flagship bistro that tells the story of our sumptuous brand.”
