Marco Pierre White mulls future of Dubai outlet
The future of Marco Pierre White's Titanic restaurant at the Melia Dubai hotel is unclear, following the rebranding of the lounge area.
Industry sources told Caterer Middle East the celebrity chef was looking to withdraw from the restaurant, but a hotel spokesperson said "no decision has been made on Titanic".
Titanic opened in 2012, comprising a restaurant, bar and lounge.
The spokesperson confirmed the lounge area would "no longer be part of the restaurant".
Other Marco Pierre White restaurants in the UAE include Frankie’s Steakhouse and Grill in Dubai, Frankie’s Restaurant and Lounge in Abu Dhabi, Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse and Grill in Abu Dhabi and Marco Pierre White's Wheeler's, but are run by a separate operator to Titanic.
