We were delighted to talk with Michael Gottlieb, one of the restaurant industry’s most influential figures over the past thirty years and it is an interview worth listening to for its candour and views. During the interview, Michael talks of his career, of politics and the Prime Minister, of US politics and the real dangers that the restaurant sector faces as we re-emerge from the pandemic. Michael believes that potentially up to 40% of restaurants could be casualties as the economy restarts.
These are interesting times and it is always important to hear the views and thoughts of key industry figures such as Michael. Michael Gottlieb is a renowned restaurateur but who would have been a music man had he not had a natural flair for hospitality. He has a love for the industry and for great restaurants operating well.
