Diners are rushing to eat at the table where Charles Saatchi grabbed his estranged wife Nigella Lawson by the throat, sources at the restaurant have said.
Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair has been contacted by couples looking to eat at the table where a photographer captured images of Saatchi, 70, grabbing his wife’s throat, according to the Sun.
Pictures of the incident were subsequently published in the Sunday People and sparked a nationwide debate over domestic violence.
Mr Saatchi, a former advertising executive and owner of the Saatchi Gallery, dismissed the incident as a “playful tiff” but did accept a police caution for assault to stop the incident “hanging over all of us for months”.
The TV chef and her husband were granted a decree nisi at London’s High Court on 31 July in a hearing that lasted just over 70 seconds. A decree absolute will be issued within approximately six weeks, which will officially end their ten-year marriage.
Ms Lawson, 53, has made no comment since the incident at the restaurant.
The restaurant declined to comment.
