Ambrette closes - and reopens13-02-2015
The Ambrette @ Rye restaurant which closed suddenly two weeks ago, announcing it was leaving Rye following a “breakdown in the relationship” with its landlord who lives on site at the White Vine House, is to relocate within the town.
Following representations from local businesses, notably hoteliers and B&B owners, who were desperate not to lose the Michelin-ranked restaurant from the tourist town plus “over whelming support” from local residents, The Ambrette is to reopen this weekend on the site of the former Il Monisteri Italian restaurant at 6 The High Street.
The Rye Lodge Hotel is thought to have been a prime mover in galvanising locals to persuade award-winning chef-patron Dev Biswal, known for creating Indian influenced dishes using locally sourced ingredients, to remain in the heart of the historic Cinque Port.
The restaurant, which opened in 2011, was the second of his three Ambrette sites - the first having opened in Margate in 2010. The third opened in Canterbury in Kent last year.
