Madison Mayfair are very proud to have successfully identified a General Manager for one of Britain’s most famous chef’s – the legendary Marco Pierre White.
Dubbed the godfather of modern cooking, Marco Pierre White is a renowned chef, restaurateur and TV personality who has led the UK restaurant scene for 25 years and helped kick-start the careers of many chefs including Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, both of whom trained under him. He was also the first and youngest chef to be awarded 3 Michelin Stars for his cooking.
Marco Pierre White is to revitalise one of the Capital’s most celebrated restaurant names by opening a new venue in the City of London. Wheeler’s Rib Room & Oyster Bar will open in Threadneedles Hotel, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection of uniquely independent luxury hotels, this March.
The oldest fish brand in the world
Marco says: “The Wheeler’s brand was originally created in 1856 by Captain Wheeler in Whitstable. It was later brought to London’s Old Compton Street by Bernard Walsh and was regularly visited by, amongst others, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Walt Disney. It has a fascinating history as the oldest fish brand in the world and it’s great to be bringing it back to the City after a 20-year absence”
