Tragus Holdings, the casual dining group, has opened its 100th Café Rouge site in the new St Katherines Dock development behind London’s Tower Bridge. The 120-cover restaurant, which is one of the company’s key brands, brings the group’s portfolio to 267 outlets. The riverside site is the sixth Café Rouge to have been located almost next to the group’s other brand, a Strada restaurant, with the group looking to rollout the two chains together where possible. Graham Turner, Tragus’s chief executive, said: “The two brands complement each other rather than competing, as Café Rouge brings in daytime business, while Strada attracts more customers in the evening.” The company, which has opened 36 sites across all its brands during the first six months of this year, said that it planned to open a further 10 to 12 new outlets under each of its Café Rouge and Strada brands during the next year, as well as several under its new Huxleys Bar & Kitchen venture. The next new Café Rouge will open in Bristol in the new Cabot Circus development at the end of the summer.
