French food lovers will be able to have their fill at the new Côte Brasserie which opens on Lincoln High Street this week after a £1 million investment.

The new restaurant, located in the former Craft Bar, will be able to cater for up to 200 people and has created around 50 new jobs for the local area.

Côte opens its doors to customers for the first time at 8am on Wednesday February 10.

It will offer diners a sophisticated Parisian-style all day dining experience, drawing on both classic and more contemporary French cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast options feature artisanal French jams to the Guérande sea-salted butter served with the freshly baked croissants, eggs Benedict with homemade Hollandaise.

There is also a signature French breakfast, which includes a boudin noir, a croque monsieur, French toast and a vegetarian breakfast.

Set over two floors, including a large heated garden terrace, the design of the Lincoln Côte Brasserie includes several brand new elements, not previously seen at Côte such as a bar on the ground floor for dining guests to sit and have drinks before moving upstairs to eat.

Côte Restaurants CEO, Alex Scrimgeour said: “Our location places us right in the heart of the action; amongst old buildings with striking features and local markets to explore.

“We are delighted to offer further choice to this thriving town and feel confident that our combination of warm and welcoming service, simple, freshly prepared French food, and excellent value for money will be popular in Lincoln.”
