Adieu, L'Orangerie

Oh...No....Another historic Los Angeles eatery hanging up it's saute pans.

After 29 years of serving French haute cuisine to Angelenos, L'Orangerie "will be no more," says owner Gerard Ferry. He has sold the restaurant — a package deal that includes everything in the restaurant, including the well-stocked wine cellar, to Nobu Matsuhisa and his original partner in the Nobu chain of restaurants, Robert De Niro, for an undisclosed price.

...The closing of L'Orangerie, the last restaurant to deliver an old-school, formal French dining experience in Los Angeles, signals the end of an era. When luminaries such as Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Betsy Bloomingdale and Kirk and Anne Douglas wanted to dine somewhere a little more celebratory than even Chasen's, L'Orangerie was the place.- Latte Times

A definate end of an era for the "Ladies who Lunch" and "Entertainment Biz" crowd.
