Bristol Farms Newfound Market Debuts at Irvine Spectrum Center

Gourmet grocer Bristol Farms has opened a new culinary concept at Irvine Spectrum Center.

Called Bristol Farms Newfound Market, the 34,000-square-foot grocery venue features an elevated food hall with seven of its own chef-created restaurant brands.

It’s among the latest in new, innovative grocers moving into Irvine Company retail centers.

“If you’re someone who loves to cook, entertain or are a passionate foodie, we invite you to come and explore,” says Bristol Farms CEO Adam Caldecott, who refers to the new store as Bristol Farms 3.0.

Step inside, and you’ll find thousands of natural and organic food items, a boutique wine shop with wine stewards to assist you, and grass-fed beef from responsibly managed ranches.

You’ll also find a full-service restaurant, a European-style café and five fast-casual venues with fresh, modern twists on traditional favorites.
