Marco Pierre White is to open a Mr White’s English Chophouse on Canal Street, Manchester city centre.

The restaurant will open in the Velvet Hotel, taking over the existing Velvet restaurant, with Velvet’s bar to remain as a separate business.

Due to open in April, the menu will focus around steaks and grills and combines ‘English classics alongside French flair’.

The new Chophouse is the second under the concept to open in the UK and closely follows a new venue in Whitechapel, London.
