BREAKING: From what I’ve heard directly from staff (not a frigate bird among them), Lumiere owner David Sidoo had given notice to his employees for a June 20th closure of the restaurant so that it could undergo renovations (like Feenies) for DB Bistro Moderne, due to open at some point in the Fall.
Sadly, I’ve just been told that Mr. Sidoo has now informed his staff that the restaurant will instead close tomorrow (June 1st), effectively throwing them out of work 20 days earlier than they had prepared for or anticipated. So much for loyalty…
Since the new poll in the right column suggests that 10% of our readership are restaurateurs, I’m sure some of you will be heading down to Lumiere tonight to
poach the staff pay your last respects. Don’t forget to tip well.
