Marco's Stag Do
This is where Marco Pierre White had his stag do
Location: 43 Upper Brook Street, W1K 7QR
Description: And so it was in August 1992 that Marco Pierre White wed for the second time to model Lisa Butcher.
Marco decided on a stag-do in a private room at Albert Roux's restuarant, this very restaurant, 'Le Gavroche'.
Rowdy and fun and good old boy's knees up, those attending included the legendary Keith Floyd and Sir Michael Caine, as well as well as chefs Tom & Eugene McCoy.
These was also as Keith Floyd remembered, a chap called 'Jim'...and this Jim turned out to be Jim Capaldi, drummer with rock band Traffic as well as an influential songwriter, having worked with Eric Clapton and Paul Weller.
With fish & chips and booze a plenty, must have been a top night!
