A restaurant has announced it is closing down following "deteriorating trading conditions".

Delisserie, which has outlets in Borehamwood, Stanmore, Temple Fortune, and St Johns Wood, announced the closure this morning.

There was also a restaurant in Mill Hill, which has already shut.

The New York Deli and Grill restaurant has been trading for 16 years.

In a statement, the company said: "It is with great regret that we announce the closure of Delisserie restaurants as of this morning. Unfortunately trading conditions, for various reasons, have drastically deteriorated over the last year or so and the impact on the casual dining sector has been severe.

"Rent, rates, food and wage cost increases combined with an uncertain consumer market place has contributed to an even tougher trading environment. We would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work and loyalty and our customers for their support over the last 16 years."
