It comes just weeks after the opening of Mr White’s English Chophouse in London’s Whitechapel and joins Marco’s New York Italian which opened at the Holiday Inn in Salford Quays three years ago.
“It’s hard to beat really good classic British food, and the new English Chophouse will concentrate on excellent quality produce, cooked to perfection and served in generous portions at affordable prices,” said White.
Main courses include 35-day aged steaks, roast rump of lamb a la Dijonnaise, The Governor’s haddock and triple cooked chips and chateaubriand for two.
Starters feature baked camembert, seared sea scallops with black pudding, and duck rillettes, and puddings include Alex James cheese served with homemade drunken fruitcake, and espresso affogato.
Head chef Tom Parkin, who has run the hotel’s Velvet Restaurant for over 22 years, will remain in charge of the team under the new Chophouse brand.
Kim Eivind Krohn of KRO Hospitality, owner of the Velvet Hotel, said: “Mr White’s English Chophouse is a great addition to the Manchester restaurant scene and I believe it is going to be a big hit with the city’s discerning diners.”
