Black and White Hospitality Opens New Restaurant in Blackpool

Located in a brand-new, 144-bedroom Holiday Inn hotel, the 90-cover restaurant, which is a Marco’s New York Italian, follows an agreement between Blackpool Council and Black and White Hospitality, which is the franchising arm of Pierre White’s restaurant business.

Inspired by Pierre White’s Italian heritage and love for New York and passion for classic, simple, authentic food, guests will now be able to enjoy a mix of Italian-inspired dishes and American classics including a range of pizzas, burgers, steaks and pastas.

Nick Taplin, Chairman and CEO of Black and White Hospitality said: “We’re delighted that this latest New York Italian is now open. Interest in the build up to opening has been unlike anything we’ve experienced before so we’re expecting Blackpool to be incredibly busy.

“There is a very experienced team on site and the energy and enthusiasm is palpable. We wish them the very best as they head into the busy tourist season.

“The New York Italian concept is perfect for Blackpool and the Holiday Inn and we already have a number of hugely successful restaurants trading under this popular hotel brand.

“It represents friendly, casual dining and will give guests of the hotel as well as people of the area a great new place to go out and eat. It’s not pretentious, it’s just good food, served in a relaxed environment. We’ll now work closely with the owners to make it a big success.

“As a business we are looking at a host of new and exciting opportunities both here in the UK and abroad while working closely with business owners and investors to realise the potential of their dining spaces.

“Black and White Hospitality has a very strong portfolio and our business model of aligning the restaurant brands with hotels is one that has proved very successful in the UK. We have more sites going live in 2024 and it’s great that we are bucking the trend when it comes to opening new restaurants.”

Mark Winter general manager at the venue added: “The new interior looks stunning and it’s great that we are now open and taking bookings for those looking for a new place to dine out.

“The menu includes dishes that offer a fresh alternative, where authentic, uncomplicated food is served promptly. We’re now looking forward to welcome families, groups of friends and couples to come in to enjoy lunch or dinner or to celebrate a special occasion.“
