At least three local restaurants – including two in Tivoli Village – will not be part of phase one, phase two or any other phase of the state’s reopening plan, as they are closing for good. A fourth restaurant is also not expected to reopen.
Hamptons at Tivoli Village and Ben’Zaa Cantina at 7585 Norman Rockwell Lane, both owned by California-based Wild Thyme Restaurant Group, have closed, a spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday. She said that while Hamptons could find a home in another location, the group is looking for another concept for the site that had been occupied by Ben’Zaa.
The Brio Tuscan Grille is also intended not to reopen at Tivoli Village. Brio’s parent company, FoodFirst Global Restaurants, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April after âtemporarilyâ closing 71 of its 92 restaurants the previous month. The company said closed restaurants were its worst performers and said they may not reopen after the coronavirus closes. The 21 that remained open for takeout include Brio at Town Square, which predates Tivoli Village, but not Tivoli Brio or a partner restaurant, Bravo Cucina Italiana, at the Galleria at Sunset mall in Henderson.
A rumor that Ada’s, the Tivoli Village restaurant of James Beard Award finalist James Trees, is moving to the Brio space is not accurate, an Ada’s spokesperson said on Tuesday.
