Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White is blazing a culinary trail into Glasgow with the launch of his first restaurant in the city.

The TV chef, famed for his no-nonsense approach and Michelin-star food, has confirmed that he will open a restaurant at Hotel Indigo Glasgow in late August this year.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill will be situated on the ground floor of the hotel on Waterloo Street and will offer the chef's own brand of 'affordable glamour'.

He said: "It's been a long time in the planning, but I'm absolutely delighted to open my first city centre restaurant in Glasgow - a city that I love.

"Glasgow has a vibrant dining scene and I look forward to offering Glaswegians a taste of something a little bit different; my recipe for 'affordable glamour' which is all about serving quality food at affordable prices. It isn't about Michelin standard food, which for most is experienced as a one-off or for a very special occasion.

"The Steakhouse Bar & Grill will cater for different budgets with a very reasonably set-priced menu to our delicious steaks which will sit at the higher price range of the menu. I truly hope the restaurant will be a place for restaurant goers to return again and again."

Denis MacCann, general manager of Hotel Indigo and co-chairman of the Greater Glasgow Hotels Association (GGHA), added: "We're delighted to be partnering with Marco to open the Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Hotel Indigo. We have a great dining scene in Glasgow and this new venture is only going to enhance what we offer."

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill offers a range of regionally-inspired daily specials and a semi-private dining area to cater for those extra special occasions.
