Bourgee’s steak and lobster on the menu at Timberhill Terrace
Due to open in November, steak and lobster concept, Bourgee, will focus on luxury dining at affordable prices, a note that has delivered a truly unique positioning and has earned them an army of celebrity fans including Olly Murs, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Thom Evans, Fearne McCann and many more.
Norwich marks the first of the Essex brand’s new look Luxe lounge restaurants.
The exciting new site, at Timberhill Terrace, will take Bourgee’s signature decadent décor to a new level. Spreading over two floors, a fully-fledged restaurant will be located downstairs, whilst a Bites-Bar Luxe Lounge offering a premium bar with tapas bites will dominate upstairs.
The opening will signify a re-birth for the brand, which has undergone significant changes over the last year. Following a change in partnership, entrepreneur James Welling and MasterChef Mark Baumann are now at the helm. The dynamic duo are thrilled to be bringing Bourgee to the people of Norfolk, with a vision that will take the very best of the brand and grow it even further.
Bourgee Director, James Welling, expands: “We have undergone a lot of change in the last year and we see the launch of Bourgee on Timberhill Terrace as a significant moment for the brand. A chance for us to show exactly what Bourgee stands for and deliver our vision as a duo with full effect. We saw huge success for Bourgee in Essex, but are delighted to be expanding into Norfolk and can’t wait to show the people of Norwich what we have to offer. Norwich is a bustling city that is thriving and we are excited to be bringing a high quality dining experience that will rival the ‘experience’ residents and visitors would expect of London, right at home. Norwich is constantly evolving, and Timberhill Terrace is expanding, and we are excited to be a part of the growth that will see the city further become a key destination within the UK.”
British MasterChef contestant and Director of Bourgee, Mark Baumann, explains: “With Bourgee our ambition has always been to offer a premium dining experience that is accessible to all. We want everyone to experience the best without having to pay the earth for it. We source produce from prestigious suppliers and our in-house chefs’ craft these expertly selected ingredients into deliciously creative dishes, all served in a modern, cutting edge-designed venue with superb service and unrivalled atmosphere. This commitment to quality feeds through all aspects of the Bourgee process. Our talented team of chefs cook our prime cuts on a specialist charcoal grill, whilst diners are each given unique graphite blades imported from Germany to cut the meat without tearing. Those that have tried our steak say that it redefines their experience of good steak.”.
The two add; “The Timberhill Terrace location in Norwich is just the start for us. Now we are moving forward as a duo, our plan is so much more than delivering steak and lobster, we are on a quest to give diners a premium experience at a price they won’t balk at. We know we have a brand that hits a customer sweet spot, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
Robert Bradley, Centre Manager at Castle Mall shopping centre commented, “We are extremely pleased to be welcoming Bourgee as a new brand to Norwich. With Veeno opening in a number of weeks, and with Cocina firmly established, the new Timberhill Terrace restaurant quarter is really beginning to take shape. Adding steak and lobster to the menu is really exciting, and with each restaurant offering something different, we’ll be providing an impressive new dining area in the heart of Norwich. Timberhill Terrace is an important piece of our strategic puzzle, assisting in transforming Castle Mall into a lifestyle destination.”
