Is New York to lose all of its favorite power lunching spots?

First, the Four Seasons Restaurant closed, and now, Le Cirque — the restaurant where crème brûlée was allegedly invented (or at least perfected) — and its sister restaurant Circo have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

All is not lost, however, as the restaurant owners, the Maccioni family, assured Page Six that this move was only to allow them to protect their leases.

“We had a short-term cash-flow issue so we filed for Chapter 11 to ensure we would not lose the leases on the two restaurants,” Mauro Maccioni told Page Six. “Both restaurants continue to operate as usual and fully staffed. We are in the process of restructuring ourselves and securing some additional outside funding.”

The Chapter 11 filing says the restaurants owe about 100 creditors between $500,000 to $1 million.

We better hope they figure this out soon, because the way things are going, New York’s elite is going to have no other choice but to head *gulp* downtown the next time they want a quality meal. [NYP]

  • I was without work for six months time when my early Co-worker eventually strongly suggested me to start off freelancing at home… That was only after I gained $5000 in my first thirty days when I seriously believed I am able to do this for a living! Now I am joyful than ever… I work at home as well as I am my own boss now that I always wanted… I see a number of unhappy people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the everyday life from all of them day-after-day… Everytime I see any person similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is where I started out >>>>
