(NEW YORK POST) – The closing of the iconic Four Seasons restaurant on July 16 will leave 130 employees jobless, the company said in a state filing.
"It is unfortunate," said Julian Niccolini, who, with co-owner Alex von Bidder, is scouting for a new site for the eatery.
The next iteration of the restaurant is still more than a year away from reopening.

Of the many longtime bartenders, waiters and kitchen staff, Niccolini said, "Some will go on vacation, some will retire, some will go to work for other people."
The Four Seasons job loss was spelled out in the required Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN filing, which listed the reason for the closing as "economic."
