Famous Midtown restaurant, The Four Seasons, will close its doors on Tuesday, June 11.
The Four Seasons is closing after a 57 year run, and only a year after reopening at 42 East 49th Street. The iconic restaurant’s closing not only marks the end of an era, but illustrates how the dining scene in New York is changing—and quickly, too. Known for being a go-to lunch spot for those in power, it seems that this trend among powerful New Yorkers is gradually coming to an end.
According to a report by CNN, the restaurant’s managing partner, Alex von Bidder, said that they’re closing because “investors ‘lacked the confidence to fund it for another year or six months.'” Bidder also mentioned to the New York Times that the new location, although beautiful and run by a great team, was struggling to create enough business for investors to stick around.
The Four Seasons restaurant will officially close its doors after the lunch service this Tuesday.
