Legendary Four Seasons Is Closing Restaurant: Gothamist



The Four Seasons (which originally opened in 1959) has been around for the past in Midtown. Until now, at least. The NY Times has reported that the legendary spot is closing at lunch on Tuesday, June 11th.

The Four Seasons reopened in August 201

8 following a nearly two year closure after the restaurant moved out of its longtime, iconic space in the landmarked Seagram Building. The new bi-level spot was just a few blocks away from the old one, at 42 East 49th Street, and was just designed as grand and impeccably. But the establishment struggled to fill seats over the past ten months. On a recent weekend around dinnertime, we found the place absolutely empty, and when we swung by earlier this week things were not very lively, either.

Jee Park, senior VP of the restaurant's PR firm, sent us this statement on Saturday morning: "Regretfully, after nearly 60 years, The Four Seasons Restaurant will close the week of June 10th." Alex from Bidder, The Four Seasons managing partner, noted that the cost of running a restaurant in New York City, using the best ingredients possible continues to be a challenge against best efforts. " Park added that staff was only informed on Friday.

Alex Bidder, managing partner, adding, "We thank our loyal guests for the opportunity and support over the years. "

Bidder told the NY Times," We just could not make it; we have not done enough business to satisfy [the investors]. "
