Marco Pierre White to visit Leicester this May

Marco Pierre White is set to visit Leicester this May, marking his first visit to his newly opened Marco’s New York Italian restaurant on Granby Street.

Hosting a meet and dine evening at the restaurant, Marco’s visit will offer fans and food-lovers alike the chance to dine with this charismatic and internationally renowned chef.

Taking place on Tuesday 26th May, the event will see guests dine from a specially created menu, receiving a complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival, the chance to meet Marco and the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of his infamous ‘White Heat’.

The restaurant, based in the luxurious Mercure Grand Hotel, recently opened in February 2015 and has already firmly cemented itself as a top dining destination in the city. Serving a wide range of Italian/American fusion dishes including pasta, homemade pizza, steak, gourmet burgers and fresh fish, there is something for everyone’s taste.

General Manager, James Conaghan, expressed his delight at Marco’s visit; “We’re thrilled to welcome Marco to the restaurant for what we’re sure will be an unforgettable experience for everyone!”
