Oldest established French restaurant in north London

Dear loyal customers,
After 37 years, we have decided
its time to hang up the oven mitts and for us to close
this chapter on what has been such a huge part of our family
We made this decision late
last year, before all of this year's shenanigans and although
it has taken some time to find the right buyer, we are now
in a position to hand over the keys. We will be open as usual
up until the 24th of December. This will be our last day in
the restaurant before Chez Tonton closes its doors.
Its difficult to put
into words how much our customers, friends, family, will be
missed. Youve all made Chez Tonton what it is today.
We know its been a tough year and
in different circumstances we would have loved to have had
a farewell party, raid the wine racks one last time and find
out if that accordion actually works. Unfortunately, this
isnt possible. However, we would still love to hear
from you. Wed love to hear your stories and memories
youve shared with us and maybe any pictures you may
have. Making these memories with you is what has kept us going
and we would love to relive them and have a way to keep in
touch so please feel free to email us at "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Not only was our recipes, charm and ambiance
imported from France but all of our staff were as French as
they come. To our staff, a huge Merci. There are lots of special
mentions but none more deserving than our Head Chef, Hubert
who has been with us for over 14 years, creating some of the
best food we so often brag about. We couldn't have done it
without you all.
We started this journey together so long
ago it feels like a monumental step for us to take a step
back and soak in what an achievement and success we've built.
We are very fortunate to be in our position and looking forward
to enjoying the years to come. We've treated this year's lockdowns
almost as a little teaser to what awaits us and although restrictive,
the freedom of having time to ourselves and knowing what was
around the corner really has given us a sense of excitement
for our next adventures.
So with all that said, with a heavy heart
but a spring in our step we say
Merci et au revoir
Eric and Claudine
