Renowned chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White is to open a brand-new restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Located in the five-star Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, the new restaurant, which will be ‘Marco’s New York Italian’, is set to open on Thursday 26th September.

Inspired by his Italian heritage and love for New York, the restaurant will serve a wide variety of dishes that reflects the latest trends from ‘the city that never sleeps’ as well as traditional Italian staples.

True to his roots, Chef Marco’s ethos is to ensure his dishes are always fresh, authentic and simple whether for lunch, brunch, dinner, friends, family or business gatherings.

Chef Marco said; “Marco’s New York Italian, is all about creating an environment where people can sit and enjoy some great food with friends and family whatever the occasion and we’ve made sure that the menu and the ambiance reflects just that.”

He also added; “The idea is that Marco’s New York Italian isn’t just about selling a meal. It’s a great place to share and socialise whether it’s a night out with friends, a family lunch, or somewhere for parents to take the children out for a meal.”

Elias Chakhtoura, General manager, Fairmont Bab Al Bahr said; “We are honoured to open the first international branch of Marco’s New York Italian at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. This marks our second collaboration with Chef Marco following the success of the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill. At Fairmont, our passion is to connect our guests with the best of destinations, unique architecture, expressive décor and artistry as well as the best of experiences.  We strongly believe that this vibrant all-day dining restaurant will lend itself to be the must go to restaurant at the hotel.”

The venue will offer a casual and vibrant all-day dining experience with a ‘New York Italian’ menu that offers a mixture of Italian-inspired dishes and American classics, serving everything from fresh pasta, homemade pizza and ribs to Marco’s best-selling New York style cheesecake.

This is in addition to a vibrant beverage menu developed by Fairmont’s highly skilled mixologists, which captures the vibrant colours, culture, history and produce of some of the most famous Italian neighbourhoods in the city that never sleeps – New York.

Marco’s New York Italian marks Studio EM’s first collaboration, and a joint venture with the newly formed Black and White International, an expert hotel management company, and RMAL Hospitality a dedicated hotel and restaurant development business. Studio EM’s vision was to create a truly breathtaking space that combined the sophistication and style of Italian cuisine with the urban, artistic and dynamic vibes of New York specially that it’s the first International branch of this vibrant and fresh restaurant chain.
