Wareing out on his own

01 January 2000
Wareing out on his own

Marcus Wareing (right), the Michelin-starred chef who was ousted from L'Oranger last week, is planning to open his own London restaurant by the end of this year.

Wareing confirmed that Gordon Ramsay would provide the financial backing for a restaurant in London's West End and is looking for a suitable site.

The chef said he was also preparing an unfair dismissal claim against his former employer, the A-Z Restaurant Group.

Wareing, pictured right, who claims he was negotiating a four-year contract with A-Z Restaurants, believes that his sacking was partly due to his loyalty to Ramsay, who had resigned the previous day.

He was also unhappy about certain clauses within the proposed contract.

A-Z Restaurants has declined to comment, but Wareing claims the official reason given was that L'Oranger was failing to make sufficient profit.
