You can tell you’ve made it as a celebrity chef when you are known by just the first name… Jamie, Gordon, Michel.
Marco Pierre White picked up his first Michelin star 30 years ago and has been the legendary Marco ever since. The name is still a sign of quality and attention to detail.
His restaurant within Hilton Edinburgh Carlton Hotel is a sleek, contemporary dining room with a moody black and white picture of The Guv’nor beside his trademark black and white throne.
Today’s Big Deal invites you to dine on a three course meal there with a glass of Prosecco.
Seven days a week
Available from 5.30pm to 8pm, seven days a week, the offer is for one person to have three courses from the pre-theatre menu.
As well as a glass of Prosecco, the offer includes tea or coffee.
Individual dishes may change depending on what is in season but your menu will look a lot like this:
Beetroot and goat’s cheese salad (v)
Cappuccino of wild mushroom (v)
Poached pear and Alex James blue Monday (v)
Potted duck with green peppercorns
The French burger with melted cheese, crispy onion rings and French mustard
The governor’s fried haddock and triple cooked chips
Classic macaroni cheese with poached egg (v)
Mr Lamb’s shepherds pie
Dark chocolate mousse (v)
Selection of ice creams and sorbets
Cambridge burnt cream (v)
Keens cheddar with sherry soaked fruit cake (v)
A selection of sides including creamed cabbage and pancetta or the green salad with truffle dressing are available for £3.50 each.
Marco’s Edinburgh venture has prompted plenty of comments on TripAdvisor:
‘My family and I enjoyed a lovely meal in this fabulous new restaurant. The food was delicious… All the staff were very attentive and knowledgeable recommending dishes for us. We will definitely be back.’
‘Best steak I’ve had. The service was great, food was amazing and the steak particularly was delicious and the dessert as well. Everything was great!’
‘Excellent. Very enjoyable dinner. Excellent value, lovely juicy burgers. Good friendly service. Would definitely go again.’
As we mentioned, this Big Deal with Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill would make a great present.
Alternatively, buy a few and treat your nearest and dearest.
This offer would be perfect for a catch-up with friends; dinner with family or a romantic meal with that special someone before catching a show at Edinburgh Festival Theatre or the Playhouse.
