Inspired by the celebrity chef’s Italian heritage and love for New York, the restaurant is focused around Marco’s belief that high quality food should be an experience that is shared and enjoyed with friends and family, whatever the occasion.
Created by the man dubbed the original ‘enfant terrible’ and arguably the UK’s greatest ever chef, the new menu has a much stronger deference to America which, it is hoped, will continue to attract those looking for a casual dining experience.
Commenting on the new menu Marco said: “To create this new menu I’ve added more American influences which complements some of my favourite Italian dishes. I’ve also been conscious we remain true to the New York Italian principle to offer a fresh alternative, where authentic, uncomplicated food is served promptly.
“We want groups of friends to come in for a lunch or dinner, or mums to bring their kids for a meal out. It’s not pretentious, it’s just good food, served in a great environment.”
For starters new dishes include New Orleans blackened jumbo shrimps and a Carpaccio of beetroot, goats’ cheese, walnut dressing ideal for vegetarians.
On the mains board there is now The Big Marco which comprises two beef patties with Marco’s burger sauce while pizza lovers will enjoy the new American meat feast. Other main dishes include the Chicago hot dog, The Great American chop salad and a Surf ‘n’ Turf with a 10oz ribeye steak plus New Orleans blackened shrimps in garlic and rosemary butter.
If that wasn’t enough to tempt the taste buds, guests can then tuck into some fabulous new desserts including a Classic 1930’s New York Knickerbocker Glory, Banoffee Pie with toffee sauce and Apple Crumble.
Rafal Kaminski, Restaurant Manager added: “We are thrilled to launch our new menu, which combines some of our most popular dishes with a host of exciting new American dishes which I’m sure will be a popular choice.
“The new menu gives our regulars something else to look forward to, as well as giving people who have never joined us before the perfect excuse to plan their visit.”
