Jim Rosenthal Loses Case Against Heston Blumenthal’s Sickly Oyster

Rosenthal and his guests became ill after eating jelly oysters served as part of a food and wine-tasting evening at the “prestigious” restaurant. Rosenthal and his wife, boxing promoter Frank Warren and three other guests lashed out £1,346.33 on a “gastronomic evening” in February 2009. In all 529 diners thought Blumenthal’s dinners so good they tasted them again on the way up.
