Papa Razzi Metro Closing in Mid October
By: Rich Hosford
A popular Burlington establishment will be closing its doors this month.
The parent company announced that Papa Razzi Metro on Wall Street will close on Sunday, October 16.
This may come as a surprise to loyal patrons as the restaurant completed extensive renovations and a change in its menu just last year.
In a statement Chief Operating Office of the Newport Harbor Corporation, the parent company of the Papa Razzi brand, said “despite a significant investment in the property and refinement of brand, the concept was not received as we had hoped.”
“As an ESOP, our primary responsibility is to provide a return on investment to our employee shareholders and ensure the overall strength of the company,” he said.
He concluded by saying the restaurant group has positions available for each of their hourly employees at other Papa Razzi locations in the state.
