Black & White Hospitality, the Marco Pierre White fronted group, is opening a Steakhouse Bar & Grill in Hull.

The 140-cover restaurant is launching by the end of the year at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Hull city centre.

Nick Taplin, chief executive of Black & White Hospitality, said: “Following in the footsteps of our Marco’s New York Italian restaurants in Sheffield and Leeds, this will be our first Steakhouse to open in Yorkshire, and the fifth MPW restaurant within a DoubleTree hotel.

“There is a great synergy between our brands and we’re looking forward to bringing something completely different to Hull’s food scene.

“This is the second restaurant with Brayford Hotels after opening a steakhouse at DoubleTree by Hilton Lincoln last summer.

“We are all looking forward to the planned success of this second venture together.”
