Marco Pierre White to open a steakhouse in Liverpool

Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White is to open a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Gril in Liverpool next year.

The former three-Michelin-starred chef will launch the restaurant at the city's Hotel Indigo, a £15m boutique hotel currently under construction in Chapel Street, in Liverpool's commercial district.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill, which is set to open in spring 2011, marks White's fourth North-west venture following the launch of a restaurant and events venue at the Swan Inn Aughton and a steakhouse at the Doubletree by Hilton Chester earlier this year.

White said the Liverpool restaurant would be somewhere for friends and family to gather in relaxed surroundings and enjoy simple food, cooked well.

"Liverpool is a fantastic city with an indelible link to international trade and an eclectic flavour of personalities to match," he said.

"The city's dining scene is thriving, with a handful of fine restaurants serving very good food, but we intend to shake things up, give those more established venues a run for their money and raise the bar even higher."

The 151-bedroom, four-star Hotel Indigo Liverpool will be owned and operated by North-west development group Sanguine Hospitality. White's move into Liverpool will see him work alongside local restaurant entrepreneur Francis Carroll, with whom he has already collaborated on the restaurants in Aughton and Chester.
