dining celebrity chefs Marco Pierre White
Marco Pierre White
Updated on 30 June 2015

Marco Pierre White, the godfather of modern cooking and dubbed the first celebrity chef, was the youngest chef ever to be awarded three Michelin stars. Marco is noted for his contributions to contemporary British cuisine and this celebrity chef, restaurateur and television personality has a reputation for being the unruly child of the UK restaurant scene and is responsible for training the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Curtis Stone.

Marco joined the ranks of gastronomes in Dubai by teaming up with champion jockey Frankie Dettori and together launched Frankie's Bar & Grill, an Italian restaurant at the Al Fattan Marine Towers. The pair went on to open two more outlets at the new Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi.

In 2012 Marco opened Wheeler's of St James's at Dubai's Gate Village, a stylish restaurant based on one of London's oldest and finest fish eateries. And in 2013, Marco opened the Marco Pierre White Grill at the Conrad Hotel. This lively and sociable piano bar and lounge is a great place for guests to mingle while enjoying the classic English fare.
