Fenwick and Greggs collaborate to launch ‘Bistro Greggs’ at Fenwick Newcastle
This December, family-owned department store Fenwick is collaborating with food-on-the-go retailer Greggs on a one-of-a-kind pop up at Fenwick Newcastle.
Launching on Friday 1 December, and running to New Year’s Eve, Bistro Greggs will be an all-day dining destination, serving breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes from a Parisian-inspired space on the department store’s first floor.
Guests will access through a pergola, a playful nod to the Greggs’ signature lattice pastry design. Bistro Greggs will offer a fine dining experience, with dishes served under silver cloches by waiters in Bistro Greggs aprons and traditional white shirts and ties.
The brands, both founded in the North East, have a combined heritage of 225 years, are teaming up for the first time to open a French-style restaurant.
The restaurant will serve bespoke iterations of Greggs favourite menu items, paired with Fenwick Food Hall wines and a signature cocktail created by award winning bar, Mother Mercy at Fenwick Newcastle, The Pink Jammie Fizz inspired by Greggs’ ‘iconic’ Pink Jammie doughnut.
The menu, specially created by Fenwick Executive Head Chef, Mark Reid, in collaboration with Greggs, will see interpretations of much-loved menu items enhanced through Fenwick ‘culinary flair’.
The lunch menu at Bistro Greggs sees it served a-la-carte with duck-fat roasties, smoked pancetta, chestnuts and sprouts, while a real Greggs favourite, the Steak Bake, is “taken to new culinary heights” by being accompanied by truffled dauphinoise potatoes, green beans and almonds.
For breakfast and brunch, highlights include the “Greggs Benedict”, a Greggs Sausage, Bean and Cheese Melt reimagined with smoked ham, poached Cacklebean eggs and a Hollandaise sauce.
A selection of sweet treats includes a Greggs Yum Yum with caramel sauce and macadamia brittle and “Tea and Cake” which presents a Greggs Christmas Cake Slice paired with an Earl Grey Créme Brûlée.
Leo Fenwick, Strategic Partnerships Director at Fenwick, commented: “Fenwick and Greggs are two brands at the heart of the local community with a commitment to doing good and we are thrilled to be partnering with a much-loved brand, bringing a unique and delicious twist to the everyday Greggs experience at Fenwick.”
