Ritzi has not yet announced on its social media channels when the restaurant will have to close for good.</p

<p>According to reports in Stuttgart's local newspapers, the reason for the closure is the exit of the investor, rising rents, water damage and difficulties in finding staff, as well as the health problems of head chef Ben Benasr. He has worked at the restaurant since 2018. The Ritzi was given its current name and concept in 2020. The gourmet restaurant was awarded one star from 2022 to 2024.</p
