Holiday Inn Brentwood celebrated the launch of the new Marco Pierre White restaurant on Thursday 6th December with Brentwood’s favourite couple James ‘Arg’ Argent and Gemma Collins attending.
Arg celebrated his birthday at the event with a Freddie Mercury themed cake, dancing and performing his favourite rat-pack hits to guests.
Arg’s celebrity entourage included fellow TOWIE stars Liam Gatsby and professional boxer Ohara Davies.
Earlier this year LGH Hotels Management Ltd announced a new partnership with celebrity chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White (MPW) with plans to open a Marco’s New York Italian branch in the Holiday Inn Brentwood at the end of the year.
The Holiday Inn Brentwood underwent a significant refurbishment to upgrade the food and drink offering and the lobby.
The new open lobby dining area at both locations 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.
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.
Marco, once the youngest chef to hold three Michelin stars, commented on the new partnership with LGH Hotels Management Ltd, saying: “I am thrilled to be working with the LGH team and opening a new restaurant in 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, it will fits perfectly with the ethos of the Holiday Inn hotels and their new open lobby dining concept.”
Simon Teasdale, Managing Director LGH Hotels Management Ltd 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 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.”
