A new restaurant, owned by celebrity chef Marco Pierre White launched last week, with help from Towie stars.
Holiday Inn Brentwood, Brook Street, which is run by LGH Hotels Management Ltd, celebrated the launch of the new branch of Marco’s New York Italian restaurant at the hotel, welcoming guests from the community as well as reality TV couple James “Arg” Argent and Gemma Collins.
Arg celebrated his birthday at the event with a Freddie Mercury themed cake, dancing and performing his favourite rat-pack hits to the guests.
Marco Pierre White said: “I am thrilled to be working with the LGH team and opening new restaurants in Milton Keynes and Brentwood.
“The essence of my New York Italian is to enjoy your dining experience with excellent food and drink in relaxed surroundings, whatever the occasion, which fits perfectly with the ethos of the Holiday Inn hotels and their new open lobby dining concept.”
The Holiday Inn Brentwood had a significant refurbishment to improve the guest experience and upgrade the food and drinks on offer.
The new open lobby dining area includes a brand-new Marco’s New York Italian eatery, offering a mixture of Italian-inspired dishes and American classics such as fresh pasta, homemade pizza and ribs as well as their best-selling New York style cheesecake.
The dining space is flexible and informal with a range of high and low tables and booths to suit everyone, be it a working lunch or relaxed group meal.
Marco’s New York Italian concept is inspired by his Italian heritage and love for New York, which promises high quality family-friendly food at reasonable prices.
Managing director of LGH Hotels Management Ltd Simon Teasdale said: “We are delighted to partner with such a renowned and reputable chef such as Marco Pierre White, a name our guests will be most familiar with.
“I know Marco will revitalise our food and beverage offering at the Holiday Inn Milton Keynes – Central and the Holiday Inn Brentwood, which is critical for our business strategy and development in these areas.
“Launching these New York Italian restaurants will not only improve the services for our hotel guests but will open the door to new stand-alone dining guests.”
