Richmond Row Restaurants Close

January 4, 2011 at 10:00 pm Leave a comment

Two mainstay restaurants on London’s Richmond Row are closed, but a white knight is knocking on the door.

TJ Baxter's

T.J. Baxter’s and Oscar Taylor’s, which debuted in 1991, have been closed since New Year’s Eve and plans to shut them down have been in place for at least a few weeks.

Those who supplied beer and food to those eateries were told their services wouldn’t be needed in the new year, restaurant industry sources say.

This week, employees were also told of the closings.

But while the news seemed dire for what may be the most prosperous retail strip in London, it appears good news is just around the corner.

The same sources that say T.J. Baxter’s and Oscar Taylor’s are out believe a national player will replace them SIR Corp., whose restaurants include Jack Astor’s Bar and Grill.

Those beliefs gained traction Tuesday when officials associated with SIR Corp. were seen taking measurements in T.J. Baxter’s.

Neither officials with SIR Corp. nor the building’s owner responded Tuesday to Free Press interview requests.

Yay, more chain food!
