The biggest tax scandal to hit the wireless had to have been Dolce & Gabbana's infamous trial in Milan, but Madrid's taxmen aren't slacking off in the meantime. Slamming the shutters down on one of Madrid's top restaurants over unpaid taxes, Madrid's authorities have put the legendary Gastro into a tight bind that may see it remain closed for some time.
One of the best restaurants in Madrid, chef Sergi Arola’s Gastro, closed earlier this week due to unpaid taxes, The Telegraph has reported.
The restaurant, which is one of only six in Madrid to earn two coveted Michelin stars, was opened five years ago by the renowned Spanish chef and immediately became one of the most difficult reservations to get in the city. But all that came to an end abruptly on June 25, when during lunchtime service six agents arrived at the restaurant and promptly shut it down, taking inventory of assets including its extensive wine collection.
