Chef owner, Gary Usher, and his restaurants, Sticky Walnut, Burnt Truffle and Hispi have been voted as three of the top 100 restaurants in website and restaurant guide, Squaremeal’s annual UK’s Top 100 Restaurants- the only restaurateur to have more than one establishment featured.
The awards, voted by readers of the site and top food bloggers, announced Hoole based Sticky Walnut as number 14 on the list, with Heswall’s Burnt Truffle at number 48 and despite only being open nine months, Didsbury based Hispi featured at number 98. With London restaurants excluded from the list, regional restaurants are given the chance to shine and Usher’s restaurants have done just that.
Chef owner Gary Usher comments, “We’re absolutely chuffed to have not just one, but all three of the restaurants featured in the list. The Top 100 is a great way to champion restaurants outside of London and ensure the hard work all the regional teams put in is recognised. With Wreckfish opening in September, we’re hopeful that we’ll have another restaurant to add to the list in 2018!”
Both Sticky Walnut and Hispi also featured in the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards Top 100 UK Restaurants earlier in the year. Gary Usher’s fourth restaurant, Wreckfish, will be opening in Liverpool in September 2017.
