There’s just one week to go until Marco Pierre White’s steakhouse opens in Lincoln, and chefs at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lincoln are in the final stages of a rigorous grilling!
In order hit the opening date of Saturday 30th July, all of the chefs working at the fifth floor restaurant have to meet Marco Pierre White’s exacting standards. As part of the training process, Andrew Bennett, Chef Director for Marco Pierre White, has moved into the DoubleTree by Hilton to spend time, face-to-face, with the restaurant’s kitchen team, showing them the ins and outs of cooking the Marco way.
Daryl Jackson, Head Chef at Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse in Lincoln said:
It’s been incredibly hard work, but really good fun. We’ve been through an incredibly intensive week of training, perfecting our techniques and understanding of each dish on the menu. Andrew arrived late on Sunday and we were all in the kitchen at 8am on Monday morning. It’s been 10pm finishes all week as we’ve been put through our paces.
We simply can’t open and serve Marco’s dishes if we’re not up to scratch. Thankfully, our team of experienced chefs made the grade, and now we’re really looking forward to opening night.
Richard Metcalfe, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Lincoln, added:
One of the things that makes the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse stand-out is that, unlike some other restaurants, we use fantastic fresh ingredients in all our hand prepared dishes.
From freshly chopped herbs to simmering sauces, there is a very clear focus on cooking from scratch – something we think guests will recognise and appreciate from their first bite.
The stunning restaurant, adjacent to the recently refurbished Electric Bar, has 100 covers and has, itself, been redesigned and redecorated to give diners a real taste of ‘affordable glamour’, with sweeping views of the Cathedral. The steakhouse will offer a delectable mix of delicious English and French classics, alongside a range of 28-day aged native breed steaks.
