A NEW Marco Pierre White Italian restaurant is set to open in Stratford next month, bringing 30 new jobs to the area.

The new restaurant in Chapel Street, will be a Marco’s New York Italian and the latest to open under the name of the celebrity chef.

Diners will be able to choose from a varied menu that includes traditional Italian pasta and pizza dishes, alongside a range of American style hotdogs, burgers, ribs and steaks.

Other dishes available include a small variety of fish and chicken, finishing with a dessert menu.

The restaurant is creating 30 new positions and recruitment is currently underway.

Mark Nesbitt, spokesman for Marco’s New York Italian, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity to bring Marco’s cuisine to Stratford.

"With the location of the restaurant on Chapel Street being in such a prime spot within the town and within close proximity to all of the theatres, we look forward to welcoming visitors in for pre- and post-performance dining.”

The restaurant is set to open on August 17, with an official launch party to be announced shortly after.
