Marco on the menu

Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - FOOD -

Vis­i­tors to celebrity chef Marco Pierre White’s new restau­rant in the county al­ready feel his pres­ence when they en­ter, as his im­age is all around.

But this week­end, the chef who has cu­rated the menu him­self, will be there in the flesh as he at­tends his Steak­house Bar and Grill at the Best Western, Clifton Ho­tel in Folke­stone, for a meet and greet and book sign­ing.

The restau­rant opened on the Folke­stone seafront back in Au­gust, of­fer­ing sump­tu­ous sur­round­ings and top notch food with a mix of child­hood favourites and mod­ern day del­i­ca­cies and an ex­ten­sive cock­tail menu.

Marco, once the youngest chef to hold three Miche­lin stars, said: “My restau­rants are not stuffy and pre­ten­tious, in­stead they are about en­joy­ing your evening, with great food and drink in re­laxed sur­round­ings and quite sim­ply hav­ing a good time.

“The menu is all about clas­sic, recog­nis­able dishes, cooked sim­ply us­ing the finest in­gre­di­ents to de­liver de­li­cious food. “De­li­cious food, gen­er­ous por­tions and great ser­vice; all de­liv­ered in a re­laxed, wel­com­ing set­ting. I call it af­ford­able glam­our.”

He will be at the restau­rant, which has 82 cov­ers, on Fri­day, Novem­ber 30. The price for the event is £39.95 per per­son which in­cludes a three­course lunch, a glass of fizz, meet and greet with Marco and a signed book. Call 01303 251107 or visit mp­wrestau­
