Square Meal Review of Sticky Walnut ?

A quirky neighbourhood restaurant tucked away in a suburb of Chester, the Sticky Walnut was dreamed up by young chef Gary Usher – a veteran of big-name kitchens such as Chez Bruce, York & Albany and various Jamie Oliver outlets. As you might expect, there’s a strong Italian accent to the food here – from fresh tagliatelle with wild garlic, broccoli and new season’s peas to braised lamb neck with courgette salsa, fresh ricotta and potato gnocchi. The eponymous nuts also pop up here and there (in Cashel Blue arancini with poached pears and creamed spinach, for example), and there’s big emphasis on focaccia and other home-baked breads. Desserts such as crème brûlée or rhubarb and almond tart have a more generic flavour, likewise the well-spread wine list.

For starters I chose flamed mackerel, apple salsa with lemon, fennel and couscous which sounded enticing and it delivered. The apple was tangy and the lemon and fennel couscous was really fresh which worked beautifully against the fish...
