What were some of the top stories in hospitality this week? Here's our pick.
  • Michelin-starred restaurants in England should be forced to display food hygiene ratings​ or face a fine, Councillors have warned. In December The Food Standards Agency found that just 55 per cent of Michelin venues scored the top hygiene score, compared to 83 per cent of chains.
  • Chef Jason Atherton is opening his first restaurant in the Philippines​ in his wife Irha's home town of Cebu. Described as a 'love letter' to his spouse, The Pig and Palm will serve a tapas-style serving menu with a 'Filipino twist'.
  • The Tate Modern is seeking 120 restaurant staff to work in five bars and restaurants as part of its new £260m extension.​ Launching in June, the ten-storey Switch House development will expand gallery space by 60 per cent and is expected to boost visitor numbers by 1m a year.
  • Travelodge has opened its first hotel aimed at Chinese travellers​ in anticipation of a surge of visitors from the region. Located near designer shopping outlet Bicester Village, the hotel offers 'noodle kettles', green tea and staff trained to welcome guests in Mandarin.
