The casual dining crunch: why are Jamie’s Italian, Strada, Byron (and the rest) all struggling? | Life and style | The Guardian
Chef Gary Usher owns four bistros in the north-west of England, including his flagship Sticky Walnut in Chester, which pride themselves on “proper” cooking. He scoffs at the large chains blaming external factors – which are punishing for independents, too – for their woes. Yes, last year’s business rates reassessment hit hard (according to analysis by Colliers International, the Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group’s rates went up 28%, or £1.6m), but there could be a far simpler reason why they are struggling. “Strada being in trouble doesn’t surprise me one bit: it’s fucking awful,” he says. “Why do they deserve to stay open? Strada, Côte – I despise Côte – Carluccio’s, Jamie’s, they should be fucking closing. I ate in the Liverpool Jamie’s two months ago and it was possibly the worst meal I’ve ever had. It was appalling. I ordered what was supposed to be sausage ragout. It looked like boiled tomatoes with overcooked pasta, and it tasted the same.”
