Rhodes D7 Stays Closed

One of the most read posts on my blog concerns the now-closed Rhodes D7 restaurant on Capel Street. The restaurant was apparently due to reopen on St. Patrick's Day following a refit and a menu redesign. However, it's still closed.

Yesterday, an article in yesterday's Herald stated that staff feel they have been "strung along" by management, and claim that their demands for redundancy have been ignored. The future of the restaurant still appears unclear, as owner Sean Kelly is due to meet chef GaryRhodes to discuss the future of the restaurant.

The staff have been left hung out to dry. Imagine if you were in a foreign country, with a family of your own, and you were made redundant. With no money to fend for your children. For what its worth, if the redundancy was paid, employees would have more time to look for another job in this very difficult climate, and not have to worry about going back to a different country. Gary Rhodes should hang his head in shame. After all, these are the everyday people who made him his fortune. Alas, the rich just always get richer....
