The vast French brasserie and bistro, Les Deux Salons, on William IV Street near Trafalgar Square in Covent Garden is for sale, and appears to have closed just before Christmas, Eater has learnt.

The restaurant was originally opened by Anthony Demetre and Will Smith, the owners of Wild Honey (and Arbutus, which is now Flavour Bastard) in 2010. Late in 2014, the duo sold it to restaurateurs Terence Conran and Peter Prescott, who own and operate Albion, Tratra and The Boundary in Shoreditch; Albion in Clerkenwell; Lutyens on Fleet Street and Parabola, the restaurant overseen by chef Rowley Leigh at the Design Museum in Kensington.

Though Les Deux Salons is no longer listed among Prescott and Conran’s interests, the news of its closure was not announced publicly and the company has not responded to Eater’s request for comment.

The 8,961 square-foot, two-storey (plus basement) site is being marketed as “flagship restaurant,” seeking new buyers with an unspecified premium (up-front fee) and annual rent of £450,000.

More soon.
