Marco Pierre White heading to revamped Carlton

Carlton HotelTop restaurateur Marco Pierre White is opening another outlet in Scotland. He is to launch a 90-cover steakhouse in the refurbished Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh.

It will form part of the £18 million modernisation of the 211-room hotel on North Bridge.

The scaffolding is now being taken down after the months-long re-fit which will see the hotel rebranded under the Hilton franchise.

Completion has already been put back twice and the hotel management now expect to relaunch in September.

Marco Pierre White, the enfant terrible of British cooking,trained as a chef under Albert and Michel Roux.

He went on to make his name working with the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal. At 33, he became the youngest chef to be awarded three Michelin stars.

He bought L’Escargot and despite shifting his focus more on restaurants than cooking he has remained in the public eye through reality television programmes such as Hell’s Kitchen and by endorsing various products such as Knorr stock cubes and Bernard Matthews ready meals.

He opened his first Scottish restaurant, Wheeler’s of St James, in a hospital in Dumfries in 2014.

He also has a Steakhouse Bar & Grill in Hotel Indigo in Glasgow and Newcastle.
