Pop-Up Marx to Open at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech

Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech will showcase the new French cuisine of Michelin-star Chef Thierry Marx this autumn. The hotel’s sublimely stylish Mes’Lalla restaurant will host POP-UP MARX from 6 September to 30 November 2019.

Bringing his avant-garde approach to cooking from Mandarin Oriental, Paris, where he is Executive Chef at Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx, Camélia, Bar 8 and l’Honoré, Thierry Marx will introduce Mes’Lalla diners to modern French dishes developed during a career that has taken him to Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan and Australia.

By transforming Mes’Lalla’s menu, Chef Marx will effectively turn the restaurant into a quintessential French eatery, where he will revisit French culinary tradition to craft a selection of contemporary dishes that are as visually enticing as they are a joy to eat.

POP-UP MARX diners will be invited to discover an À La Carte Menu of unconventional recipes such as Salmon with seaweed, Carpaccio of Octopus, and even Zucchini with marinated peach and marjoram jus, a series of exciting new taste and texture combinations that will delight epicureans.

For further information and reservations, please call +212 5 24 29 88 88 or email momrk-reservations@mohg.com.

Guests can also enjoy this limited time gastronomic experience by taking advantage of the Resort’s latest accommodation offers at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech.
