MARCO Pierre White has personally handpicked the restaurant manager for his first restaurant in Glasgow.

The legendary TV chef’s latest venture, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Hotel Indigo, opens next month and he has chosen Richard Wilson to oversee its management.

Glaswegian, Wilson, has enjoyed extensive experience in a range of senior positions within the restaurant sector and joins Marco from the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, where he was general manager, having impressed Marco with his drive and commitment.

Whilst visiting Glasgow recently to check up on progress, Marco said: “Richard is the perfect manager to open my first Glasgow restaurant – aside from his dedication and commitment to deliver an excellent dining experience – as a Glaswegian born and bred, he knows just what makes Glaswegians tick and he knows the city inside out.

“With only weeks to go now, we’re all set to hit the ground running; the team is prepared and eager to welcome guests.”

Of his appointment, Wilson said: “I’m delighted at this exceptional opportunity to work alongside Marco: a chef synonymous with culinary excellence.

“A great steakhouse offering great food and service is just what Glasgow needs right now and I’m convinced that Hotel Indigo provides the perfect location from which to deliver that offering.

“Throughout my career in the restaurant trade, my ethos, based on a profound interest in the provenance of food, has remained steadfast: to serve the best food and drink to the public to deliver an excellent dining experience.

“To my mind, that thinking sits perfectly with Marco’s plans for Glasgow.”

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill will be situated on the ground floor of Hotel Indigo and will offer Marco’s own brand of ‘affordable glamour’.

The dining experience is all about a relaxed environment in a vibrant setting, creating a perfect atmosphere to be shared with friends, family, colleagues or clients.

Open for lunch and dinner, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill offers a range of regionally-inspired daily specials and a semi-private dining area to cater for those extra special occasions. The restaurant is located at Hotel Indigo Glasgow, 75 Waterloo Street.
