Restaurateur Gary Usher is aiming to raise £50,000 in 24 hours in his most ambitious crowdfunding campaign yet, which launches at 9pm tonight.
If successful, his 55-cover bistro, Pinion, in Prescot, Merseyside, will open this summer. It will follow the same style as Usher's other restaurants, Sticky Walnut in Chester, Burnt Truffle in Heswall on the Wirral, Hispi in Didsbury, Greater Manchester, and Wreckfish in Liverpool.
Usher, who featured in The Caterer's Top 100 Most Powerful People in Hospitality, told The Caterer that Pinion will see him return "back to where he started with restaurants" and that it will be "really casual and have a neighbourhood restaurant feel to it, where you could nip in on your way back from work and have beef and chips".
