Top chef not now coming to Jersey

AFTER months of speculation, it has been confirmed that celebrity chef Marco Pierre White will not be opening any restaurants on the Waterfront.
And it is looking likely that the three restaurants, which had been due to open at Dandara’s Castle Quay flat development, will now become offices and a nursery.
This week two applications for Castle Quay were submitted to the Planning department. They include plans to change the use of a restaurant into a nursery – Organic Kids Ltd – and a proposal to change two restaurants into offices by Dandara Jersey Ltd.
Dandara’s press officer, Christine Holmes, said: ‘Castle Quay is a very important Waterfront destination and as such, it is imperative that the space is filled. We are therefore exploring alternative uses to keep our options open.
‘We are in the final stages of negotiations with a restaurant operator, details of which will be available in the next three months. It is not Marco Pierre White.’
