Celebrity chef will open latest venture at Hotel La Tour in November, offering high quality meat dishes and home-grown classics
Marco Pierre White is extending his Birmingham empire after announcing the launch of ‘Mr White’s English Chophouse’ restaurant at Hotel La Tour.
The famous chef made his first foray into the city with the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar and Grill on the 25th floor of The Cube on Wharfside Street.
His new restaurant has a similar meaty emphasis – and “will bring the traditional concept of a British chophouse to contemporary diners.”
We can expect “fresh, high-quality meat cuts prepared with precision by trained craftsmen.”
These include the Butcher’s Block featuring four cuts of steak, as well as traditional home-grown classics including Welsh rarebit, grilled oysters, chicken and leek pie, smoked trout tartar, lamb chops and Windsor ham with fried duck eggs – all served in the luxurious surroundings of the modern four-star hotel.
According to the celebrity chef, Birmingham is the perfect location to open his latest restaurant venture.
Speaking at his MPW restaurant at The Cube, after a cooking demonstration for a lucky group of local catering students, Marco told WOWBrum: “Birmingham has changed tremendously since I first launched the restaurant here in 2011. The city is now a very exciting place to be.”
And explaining the inspiration for his new restaurant at Hotel La Tour, Marco said: “Chophouses were created in London in the 18th century and became fashionable in the 1960s. Our past is our foundation, let’s not forget that. As my dear mother used to say, a tree without roots is a piece of wood.”
Mr White English’s Chophouse at Hotel La Tour, Albert Street will open mid November.
