Rebranding of Melia Dubai lounge area casts doubt on Marco Pierre White's Titanic

The future of Marco Pierre White's Titanic restaurant at the Melia Dubai hotel is unclear, following the rebranding of the lounge area.

Industry sources told Caterer Middle East the celebrity chef was looking to withdraw from the restaurant, but a hotel spokesperson said "no decision has been made on Titanic".

Titanic opened in 2012, comprising a restaurant, bar and lounge.

The spokesperson confirmed the lounge area would "no longer be part of the restaurant".

Marco Pierre White has four other restaurants in the UAE including Frankie’s Steakhouse and Grill in Dubai and Frankie’s Restaurant and Lounge in Abu Dhabi and Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse and Grill in Abu Dhabi.

RMAL Hospitality recently opened Marco Pierre White’s Wheeler’s outlet in the popular DIFC area and there is a Marco Pierre White Grill set to open in Conrad Dubai.
