Piquet goes into administration after one year

Piquet in London, the restaurant set up by chef Allan Pickett and restaurateur Andre Blais, has gone into administration one year after opening.

Chef-patron Pickett announced he was taking a "leave of absence" from the 98-cover restaurant in June.

At the time Blais, the French-Canadian founder of barbecue meat group Bodean's, told The Caterer: "He's taking a leave of absence for an undefined period of time. In the meantime, his loyal team keeps on delivering great food and service."

The restaurant, which opened in September 2015, received largely positive reviews, including a four-star review from London Evening Standard critic Fay Maschler who described the restaurant as "classic but also savvy, energetic and with an ear to the ground".

Piquet posted a statement on its website saying: "The company has ceased to trade, no further orders will be taken and no further deliveries will be made.

"The joint administrators will contact all creditors and employees of the company by post which will contain the relevant information creditors and employees will require to make a claim in the administration. The affairs, business and property of the company are being managed by the joint administrators."

Nobody from Piquet restaurant was available to comment at the time of publishing.
