Last time we checked in with the always-cool-no-matter-what chef Marco Pierre White, he was retooling his public image and pimping bouillon. Now he’s opened two restaurants in Dubai, including one called Titanic, which targets that most elusive customer demographic: parched, first-class centennials. Magret duck, lobster pasta, and rib-eye with Béarnaise are all on the menu. The name has nothing to do with the big boat; Titanic was the name of a previous restaurant the chef helmed in the nineties. White, who no longer works the line, told Time Out Dubai he misses, “nothing, to be honest,” of kitchen work. “I’ve achieved everything I set out to achieve.” So, his heart will go on, and as an added bonus, he won’t go down with the ship.
