Another Fairfield County restaurant has closed its door due to the financial hardships connected with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Brio Tuscan Grille, a local favorite for Italian dining in the Danbury Fair Mall, has permanently closed, according to its parent company.
The company has filed for bankruptcy protection from creditors, crediting the global pandemic as the reason.
The restaurant was part of the mall's redevelopment efforts after Filene's department store shuttered.
Other businesses that were part of the redevelopment attempt included the Cheesecake Factory, Dick’s Sporting Goods, L.L. Bean, and Forever 21, which closed earlier this year after also filing for bankruptcy.
