First, it lost its founding chef Anna Hansen back in 2019 and then the Modern Pantry closed for good in December 2020 after their lease came to an end (it's now an estate agency, it seems). However, they said at the time that they were looking for a new space and now, according to trade website Big Hospitality, it appears to have found a new home.
And this new home is literally a few steps from the original restaurant. Apparently, the new location for The Modern Pantry will be in The Zetter Hotel in Clerkenwell, just across the square from the Pantry's previous location. It's being reopened by D&D Restaurants, but as yet details are quite thin on the ground and we're yet to hear if Head Chef Robert Mcleary will be back.
We'll update you with more info as soon as they reveal their plans.
