Leicester’s Marco’s New York Italian launches new menu
Diners at Marco’s New York Italian in Leicester can now enjoy a host of exciting new dishes, as the restaurant unveils its brand new mouth-watering menu.
Located at Mercure Leicester The Grand Hotel on Granby Street, Marco’s New York Italian is a concept that combines quality with comfort, allowing guests to enjoy traditional American Italian cuisine in a modern dining environment.
Inspired by Marco Pierre White’s Italian heritage and love for New York, the new menu, which launched on Friday 30th September, uses Marco’s famous cooking techniques to create a unique dining experience that appeals to guests of all ages.
Old favourites including the Baked New York Italian Meatballs, Lasagne Bolognese Al Forno and Macoroni Di Funghi will be preserved, and joined by mouth-watering additions such as the Chicken Milanese Burger and New Orleans Seafood Kebab.
Also featuring on the new menu is The Italian Burger – a dish bursting with rich Italian flavours that truly reflect the beauty of traditional cooking done well. Topped with smoked mozzarella, beef tomato, sun-blushed tomatoes and pesto, the juicy burger sits perfectly inside a fresh brioche bun, and qualifies itself as a dish worthy of a place on the impressive menu at Marco’s New York Italian.
Other new dishes include the Classic Spaghetti Napoletana, the flavoursome Seared Seabream with Caponata, and The Long Island Seafood Platter.
Lorna Robinson, restaurant manager at Marco’s New York Italian in Leicester, said: “We are extremely excited to have launched our new menu, which combines guests’ favourite dishes and a host of delicious new dishes, expertly prepared by some of the most talented chefs around.
“Our new menu gives our returning guests a selection of exciting new dishes to try, while guaranteeing an enjoyable experience for diners who are visiting Marco’s New York Italian for the first time.”
Commenting on Marco’s New York Italian, Marco Pierre White said: “If I had to choose only one cuisine to eat for the rest of my life, it would be Italian. My mother was Italian and I spent a lot of time in Italy with her when I was a boy.
“My New York Italian is all about creating a comfortable environment for friends and family to relax and enjoy some of my favourite Italian and American foods.”
Marco’s New York Italian is part of the Black and White Hospitality’s extensive restaurant portfolio, which also includes Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse & Bar Grill, Mr. White’s English Chophouse, Bardolino Pizzeria, Bellini & Espresso Bar and Wheeler’s of St James’.
