1701 was the first of its kind in London – a fine dining Kosher restaurant. But, just two years on, the dining spot is to close as it moves from its “lovely and historic” space next to the UK’s oldest synagogue Bevis Marks in the capital’s City.

The owners told the Jewish Chronicle that the site has proved to be ‘limiting’. In order to ‘realise its full potential’ the restaurant – which serves a “traditional-with-a-very-interesting-twist” Kosher menu – has teamed up with a new landlord who ‘shares their vision’. The new premises is yet to be announced.

1701 has long been listed in our annual guide, with survey reporters being pleasantly surprised by its food which“surpasses expectation”, praising it as a “fine location for business lunches”.
