Marco Pierre White to open at Chelsea football ground

Marco Pierre White is to open a restaurant at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club, Caterer can reveal.

Head chef will be Matthew Brown, former chef-proprietor of the now-closed Mayfair fish restaurant Wheeler's of St James's, which he acquired from White in 2004. Front of house will be overseen by restaurant manager Livio Italiani, who joins the restaurant from White's Italian eaterie, Luciano.

Tara Bernard, founder of design consultancy Target Living, has developed the interiors, which will combine classic and contemporary elements, including a marble mosaic at the centre of the restaurant surrounded by amber columns and wooden booths.

"It's the kind of restaurant that I like, and the menu will feature all of my favourite dishes," White told Caterer. "Interiors will resemble the old-fashioned style of the former Savoy Grill but will include contemporary elements, making the restaurant a modern, yet classic, environment."
