Gary Usher opens crowdfunded second restaurant

Sticky Walnut's Gary Usher has crowdfunded his way on Kickstarter into opening a second restaurant, Burnt Truffle in Heswall, Merseyside.

The new restaurant allows for 60 covers inside, as well as a further 40 on the terrace, which will be left for walk-ins.

The kitchen is headed up by Michael Wong, and Usher will divide his time between the two restaurants.

Burnt Truffle’s menu includes dishes such as Razor clam, samphire, fennel, coriander dressing & pink grapefruit for starters, Spinach and ricotta tortelli, sage and pine nut noisette for mains, followed by Banana parfait, caramel ice cream, chocolate & peanut brittle.
