6. Le Cirque

Over the past 43 years, famous French restaurant, Le Cirque, has occupied three different locations. On New Years Eve, however, it served its final dishes at the Bloomberg Tower on East 58th Street.

Le Cirque has long been known as one of the most famous restaurants in New York City for fine dining. At its prime, the restaurant hosted A-List people on a regular basis, adding to its long established legacy of being a high class restaurant. Inside, the circus-themed restaurant featured formal decor — comprised of tent shades, circus balls and monkeys — to compliment its elegant food. Despite its high priced offerings and drinks, Le Cirque reportedly shuttered due to high rent. However, the owners are currently looking to move to a fourth, smaller location, and have their eyes already set on a space in the Upper East Side on 36 East 60th Street, between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue, reports Eater NY.
