Le Caprice, the London restaurant that became a favourite for celebrities such as Princess Diana, will no longer reopen its doors after 38 years of trading.
According to a statement received by the Daily Mail, The restaurant, which is owned by millionaire businessman Richard Caring, said that it would be “reborn at a new location” but did not disclose any further details.
Le Caprice decided to temporarily close its doors following government advice to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus back in March.
Caring is reported to have warned the government that it was “killing the country” by not providing clearer guidance on how hospitality was to reopen following the pandemic.
A spokesperson for Le Caprice told the paper: “Le Caprice has occupied the current site for 38 years and now the lease is coming to an end. The iconic restaurant within the London dining scene will be reborn at a new location currently under negotiation.
“We thank our clientele for their loyalty and support over the years and assure them that they will be as excited as us with the new plans for this historic brand.”
