Pretty quiet here as well. The heady summer days seem a long time ago now eh? I cracked last night and had to put the fire on!
....anyway restaurant news....Top man/chef/twitter bants person Gary Usher has had all of his restaurants listed in Good Food Guide 2019. Not bad eh. Stickey Walnut, Burnt Truffle, Hispi and Wreckfish. I remember meeting Gary in 2011 at Sticky Walnut and he told me to sling my hook as he didn’t need Onionring..Ha, how wrong was he.
Top Smokehouse and tasty restaurant Hickory's are only going to open up another one, this time in Crewe.
Dishoom has confirmed it will be opening its first restaurant in the Manchester in the next few months, Based inside Manchester Hall, the former Freemason's Lodge on Bridge Street, the space will be designed to evoke the 'faded elegance' of Bombay's old Irani cafés (according to the M.E.N)...ah the good old days of the elegance of the Irani cafes in old Bombay, who doesn't long to be back there?
