The former site of Morgan M in London's Barbican has been replaced by a new Italian restaurant called Pulia.
Morgan M at 50 Long Lane, owned and run by French chef Morgan Meunier, closed before Christmas.
An announcement on the restaurant's website confirmed that the business has closed "temporarily" following a sale of the Barbican and will reopen in 2014, although there are no details of a new location for the business.
Meunier recently celebrated ten years running Morgan M, during which time it moved from its original location in Islington to Long Lane in 2011.
The chef made a name for himself in the UK when he helped Alex Bentley win a Michelin star at Monsieur Max in Twickenham in 1999.
A spokesperson for Meunier said: "Having reached the milestone of running Morgan M for 10 years, he received an offer for the site,and decided that the time was right to move on.
"His plan is to take some time off with his family, and then focus on plans he'd already been working on."
