Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill

We’ve loved the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at Hotel Indigo for as long as this blog has been going. In fact, they were the first restaurant to ever approach us about doing a food review. (You can read it here if you like, now that’s digging way back into the archives of 2012!) So, when they […]
