A New York restaurant where Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein were frequent visitors decided to start a new chapter by lighting the two disgraced moguls’ regular table on fire.
Zach Erdem, the owner of 75 Main in Southampton, said he wanted to erase their names from his restaurant’s history.
Epstein, who was awaiting trial on federal charges accused of sexual abuse underage girls, was found unresponsive in his cell at New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in August of 2019.
Weinstein, a former Hollywood producer, was sentenced in March to 23 years in prison after being convicted of committing sexual assault on women.
When visiting 75 Main, the two used to dine at Table 1.
Erdem said he broke the table using an ax and a sledgehammer before dousing it in lighter fluid and lighting it on fire as people cheered and chanted “Burn, Epstein, burn!”
