Chef steaks claim in city dining scene

Marco Pierre White launches restaurant at Glasgow’s Hotel Indigo

• Marco Pierre White said his Glasgow eatery offers “affordable glamour”.

TV chef Marco Pierre White has promised “affordable glamour” at his first Glasgow restaurant.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill opened at the city’s Hotel Indigo on Waterloo Street late last month.
The menu features a selection of ribeye, sirloin, fillet and T-bone steaks and fish dishes such as smoked haddock, fillet of sea bass and garlic king prawns. The restaurant, which has a semi-private dining area, also offers a range of “regionally-inspired” daily specials.
Pierre White said the new eatery offers a “relaxed yet vibrant” atmosphere.
“The Steakhouse concept is all about giving people a setting in which they can enjoy good food at affordable prices,” he said.
“The idea is to make eating out in lovely restaurants accessible to all; which is why we cater for different budgets, ranging from a very reasonably set-priced menu up to our delicious steaks.
“I’m delighted to bring the first Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill in Scotland to Glasgow and am confident that it will become a destination for diners to return to again and again.”
The Glasgow restaurant is being managed by Richard Wilson, who Pierre White handpicked to head up the new venue. Wilson joined Pierre White from the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, where he was general manager.
Denis MacCann, GM of Hotel Indigo, said he is “thrilled” the restaurant has opened at the hotel. “Excitement about the restaurant has been mounting in the weeks leading up to our opening and bookings have already far exceeded our most optimistic projections,” he added.
