The iconic 51 year old Indian restaurant Gaylord in Fitzrovia has reopened after its unforeseen closure at the start of this month.
The restaurant — which was closed on 25 August, having been served a Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notice — was issued a “Certificate that the health risk no longer exists” on 4 September. Eater London understands that the restaurant has faced no further issues and has been operating as normal since then.
A spokesperson for the restaurant told Eater London that the hygiene issues faced by the restaurant were “as a result of the Crossrail [train tunnel digging] works taking place beneath Soho and Fitzrovia — and the resultant disruption.”
The notice, which certifies the restaurant no longer poses a health risk, states:
“The enforcement authority certifies that it is satisfied you have taken sufficient measures to secure the health risk condition described in the:
Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notice served on you on 25 August 2017 is no longer fulfilled with respect to the food business.”
