The best of the new restaurant openings

Foodies rejoice: the new season means a bunch of exciting new pop-ups and menus to sample across our Villages.

Steaming bowls of spaghetti, twisted into a nest. Sweet, spicy cinnamon buns you can smell in the breeze. The crunch of green beans beneath a creamy mustard dressing. Food is one of life’s great pleasures – and one we’ll happily plan our days around (just us?).

And while we’re probably biased, these new openings across The Bicester Collection might just be enough to tempt you away from the boutiques. Time to make those reservations…

Handmade pasta from Cecconi’s

Tuck into creamy carb-filled dishes, fresh seafood and many more Italian favourites from Cecconi’s. The latest outpost from the iconic Mayfair restaurant, this new spot promises a modern spin on classic pasta dishes, open now at Bicester Village.

Our favourite? It’s hard to resist the famed spaghetti lobster. Tossed in a smooth tomato, chilli and basil sauce, it’s got just enough kick without being overwhelming.

Taglieré Kiosk’s new Champagne spot

Nothing quite exults true joie de vivre as the pop of a bottle of Bollinger. From early December, pull up a chair at La Vallée Village’s new Bollicine Champagne bar and sample their special cuvées by the glass, accompanied by a delectable pairing of delicatessen bites.

Menu highlights include a selection of traditional cured meats (put us down for a serving of Culatello di Zibello), as well as flutes of Bollinger’s signature R.D. 2007.

A Parisian pitstop with Ladurée

Love at first sight – and well, bite. Delightfully colourful macarons encased in trimmed boxes, best enjoyed over a cup of artfully crafted coffee. Bask in a quintessentially Parisian moment at Ingolstadt Village’s new food arrival, Ladurée Salon de Thé.

An excellent spot to savour a late-afternoon pick-me-up. Sample house classics and seasonal new flavours with a mixed selection box.
