The restaurant will replace Bonds at the hotel, which is part of Marriott’s collection of Autograph hotels.
“Part of the roll out programme was to secure a London-based venue, so for our first venture into the capital to be in the five-star Threadneedles Hotel is hugely exciting,” said Nick Taplin, of Black & White Franchising.
“We wanted to be careful when choosing where to open our first central London venue and to work with those who understand and appreciate the passion and drive to provide superb service and a quality food offering.
“To work with a venue with a reputation like the Threadneedles Hotel is therefore fantastic for Black & White Franchising and we can’t wait to get this restaurant open.
“Now that the first central London franchise has been secured we now plan to expand the number of venues in the capital in line with the overall brand objectives,” he added.
Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Threadneedles Hotel will be the ninth franchised restaurant under the Marco Pierre White brand. Black & White also operates the MPW New York Italian concept.
Work will start towards the end of January on the 100 cover Victorian-styled venue that is located in a former bank with many period features incorporated into the design.
