Irish chef Richard Corrigan does not expect his London restaurants to reopen before September.
Corrigan's Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill, Corrigan's Mayfair, and Daffodil Mulligan restaurants in London are currently closed due to COVID-19.
"A Horrific Year"
Corrigan told The Irish Independent, "I am thinking it is a four-month closure, minimum.
"I can't see myself up and running before mid-August, getting ready for September.
"We are in for a very, very rough year - a horrific year."
"When Is The Other Side?"
Corrigan added, "I am still in a bit of shock over the whole affair. We are in a great place to come out of the other side, but when is the other side? Four months? Five months? Six months?
"There is no question we will come out of this. We have a very strong company."
