Richards Eat Free At Marco's New York Italian To Mark The Royal Reburial

Richards across Leicester are in for a treat next week as Marco’s New York Italian invites them to dine for free to mark the reburial of their royal namesake.
The restaurant, which opened last month within the Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel, will offer a free main meal at lunchtimes to anyone named Richard and can prove they were either born or currently live in the city.
Manish Sharma, restaurant manager at Marco’s New York Italian, Leicester, said: “King Richard III’s reburial will be a historical event and we wanted to do something ourselves to commemorate it. What better way than to honour all guests from Leicester who share the name of our royal ancestor, King Richard?”
The offer will be available between 12pm – 2pm from Sunday 22nd through to Friday 26th March and all Richards must be accompanied by a full paying guest.
Marco’s New York Italian, Leicester offers a selection of Italian- American cuisine, including steak, pasta, pizza, BBQ ribs and seafood and is open for lunch and dinner seven days per week.
