Le Gavroche to auction its wine and art collections with Christie's
Published 6 Feb 2024
French haute cuisine restaurant Le Gavroche shut its doors last month after almost 60 years of service. The restaurant might be gone but there's still a chance for you to own a piece of fine dining history. The restaurant will be auctioning off a number of items in an online event run by auction house Christie's between 10th and 24th April.
More than 100 lots will be in the auction, such as a selection of bottles from the restaurant's wine cellar, including some of the rarest vintages in the world. Added to that, pieces from the restaurant's art collection will be available, as well as other special items from the restaurant that will be familiar to anyone who has eaten there.
The Christie's auction follows on from a smaller sale that took place on 27th January. Attendees were able to buy tickets to visit the restaurant and purchase items. More details about what exactly will be up for auction with Christie's are expected to become available within the coming weeks, with estimate for lots starting at £100.
