Breaking News ! A restaurant in Chester has closed its doors for good due to the "severe strains" of the coronavirus pandemic. Brazilian eatery Picanha on Newgate Street, which is owned by restaurant group Fazenda, will not be reopening after the lockdown after its closure was confirmed by the company's managing director today (Tuesday). It is one of two premises that will be closed by Fazenda along with the Birmingham site. In a statement posted online, Fazenda managing director Tomás Maunier said: "There is no simple or easy way for me to share news like this one with you. "Following the failure to reach the necessary agreements that would have allowed us to continue trading in two of our cities, we unfortunately have to permanently close Fazenda in Birmingham and Picanha by Fazenda in Chester. "The ongoing pandemic has put severe strains on all of us, both as individuals and businesses, and these are not decisions that have been taken lightly. Customers with gift vouchers have been told to either use them at other Fazenda restaurants or to get in touch with the shop team.
. For our team, our guests and everyone who has been a part of our journey in some way. "As always, we have put our heart and soul into the business, as it brings us great joy to share our South American culture with you all. "We will come back to Birmingham and Chester, we are confident of that. It will likely be in a different location, but these are cities we love and we can’t wait to be able to return and see you all again." The Brazilian steak house opened in Chester in November 2016 following the closure of Italian restaurant Zizzi.
