Restaurateur Simon Goh will turn out the lights for the last time at his Westfield Sydney restaurant on Saturday night.
The closure of Chinta Ria: Mood for Love caps a miserable run for many of the high-profile restaurateurs who banked on the revamped shopping centre.
Justin North's Becasse famously flamed there, as did Cara & Co, which featured a highly credentialled European kitchen crew.
Hatted chef Alessandro Pavoni's Spiedo came and went, and David Tsirekas was unable to repeat the massive success of Perama in Petersham at his short-lived Xanthi restaurant.
While its food court and mid-market offerings have boomed, the high early casualty rate at the pointier end has been noticeable.
While Goh described business as "sporadic", he's proud of Chinta's seven-year run. "I'm happy my lease is over ... I'm going to sit back and relax for a bit," the veteran restaurateur says.
