The day after Emmanuel Macron’s announcements, chef Olivier Roellinger is “in shock”. Guest of the morning of Europe 1 Thursday, he said he was very worried about his sector of activity: the curfew which will come into effect on Saturday marks according to him the “coup de grace”.

“We are all in shock.” The curfew announced by Emmanuel Macron in Île-de-France and in eight major metropolises will take effect on Saturday, with a certain consequence for the restaurant sector. If he does not imply the closure of establishments, however, customers should take precautions to return home before 9 p.m. “This is the coup de grace for the entire profession”, denounces Olivier Roellinger, chef and vice-president of the Relais et Châteaux association, guest of Europe 1 Thursday morning.

“I don’t understand this logic”

“With all due respect to President Macron, I do not understand the logic of his speech. He seems to say that the virus is spreading mainly in the private sector. He salutes the efforts of restaurateurs who have put in place strict protocols, but followed to the letter. And we are told to close anyway. ” In most establishments, turnover is mainly done in the evening, he recalls, before exclaiming: “Let us work!”

“Our profession serves as a political marker”

For him, the aid announced by the president, such as the continuation of partial unemployment and the solidarity fund, will not be enough to cover the losses. “Short-time working is a very good measure, but it is a short-term measure. There, we have the impression that short-time work is becoming the norm in our profession.” Profession which according to him serves as “political marker” and symbol of the “turn of screw” of the executive. “Beyond the 150 houses that I represent, I speak for all restaurateurs and cooks. We are all in the same boat.”
