Classic dishes, simply cooked using the best, well-sourced, seasonal ingredients, is the ethos behind all of my Steakhouses. The menu is all about traditional British dishes with classics that will always stand the test of time.
Our team at Lincolnshire In Focus were invited to try the brand new Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill on the evening of Monday 8th August.
The brand new restaurant located in the DoubleTree by Hilton on the Brayford Waterfront in the city of Lincoln is perfect for steak lovers and fine diners.
We were told about the changes made in the restaurant by the General Manager, Richard Metcalfe.
Richard Metcalfe said:
Marco Pierre White’s Head Chef and the front of house staff have gone through an intensive training regime for week to prepare for the rebranding of the restaurant in the hotel. We are all very excited to see how people feel about it. We want to shout about what we now have!
The restaurant used to feature a window in which you had a view through to the kitchen and you could see the chefs at work but they have since replaced this with a stunning window display showing their fruitful selection of wines, Prosecco and champagne.
Other alterations to the restaurant include new darker wood and flooring, brand new seating with booths at one end of the restaurant for a more relaxed setting and a fantastic window panel that allows for beautiful views of the cathedral and of the Brayford Waterfront whilst you enjoy your meal. This window was previously a balcony which was not used to its full potential due to the restaurants location on the fifth floor and the British weather.
The steakhouse offers an affordable mix of delicious English and French classics, alongside a range of 28-day aged native breed steaks.
The restaurant opened at the end of July and is the fourth DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel to partner with Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, which is operated under franchise by Black and White Hospitality.
Back in July, Marco Pierre White said:
Lincoln is such a historic city and we’re really looking forward to opening and welcoming both locals and hotel guests to our Steakhouse.
I crave simplicity in both my lifestyle and food I will always choose simple traditional cooking over fancy concoctions where you’re not quite sure what the food is supposed to be.
Below is an example of a meal for two according to what we ordered at the restaurant.
