Café Rouge Salford Quays is excited to be welcoming guests back to dine in the iconic restaurant once again and enjoy its menu of French-inspired dishes, from breakfast until late.
The restaurant, which boasts a large outdoor terrace, is welcoming guests with its French-inspired à la carte favourites, alongside some new dishes and dining options including a set menu, a daily breakfast menu, a new classic afternoon tea (from £12.50pp) and a new coffee and cake range (£4.95).
The Rouge Set Menu priced £14.95 for two courses or £7.48 from Monday to Wednesday in August (terms and conditions apply), includes starters such as French onion soup topped with sourdough croutons and melted cheese; and breaded Camembert with cranberry and redcurrant chutney.
For mains, choose from Poulet Breton – roast chicken with mushrooms, courgette, leeks and a herb and wine sauce with mashed potato; a Black Angus burger; and a chargrilled chicken Caesar salad, with baby gem lettuce, avocado, anchovies and sourdough croutons. Indulgent desserts include crème brûlée with caramelised vanilla crème, and hot chocolate fondant served with vanilla ice cream.
Also launching is a Rouge in Bloom summer drinks range, with refreshing cocktail options such as the Grey Goose Spritz – a mix of delicate, floral St-Germain and fruity Grey Goose La Poire in the Grey Goose Spritz; the Lillet Rosé Spritz; and a GIN-credible Eton Mess layered with Chantilly cream, rhubarb gin sorbet and a gin-infused raspberry coulis.
The opening comes in time to take advantage of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme – offering diners 50% off Café Rouge’s menu from Monday to Wednesday in August (T&C’s apply), including the set menu. The restaurant will also be continuing to support key workers, by offering Bluelight and DDS cardholders 25% off their total bill seven days a week.
Café Rouge Salford Quays is reopening under the ownership of a new company called The Big Table, following its successful acquisition of the Bella Italia, Café Rouge and Las Iguanas brands. The move, which was backed by Epiris, preserved more than 4,000 jobs across the UK and over 150 restaurants.
“For over 30 years, Café Rouge has been an iconic part of the British high street and a much-loved restaurant by all. Although recent months have been the toughest our industry has ever faced, we’re delighted to be reopening our doors in Salford Quays and very much look forward to welcoming back our customers, whether dining in or popping by for a cocktail or two.
Whilst we promise the restaurant will be that which our customers know and love, we are taking extensive precautions and have introduced new procedures in line with government guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable Rouge experience for everyone.”
