They stuck it out for a few weeks – but tonight a Facebook post confirmed that Chef’s Restaurant and Chef’s On The Go will both be closing for the time being.

Here is the message:

“With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to control our world as we know it, we at Chef’s Restaurant and Chef’s On The Go have had to make some very hard decisions.

The Billittier Family have always been about Family first and business second. We have watched our loyal employees come to work every day. We have watched them step up to keep Chef’s running all with disregard for their own well being of staying safe at home. We can no longer watch our employees take a chance on their own health. There is more to life than money. And as much as we have had an unbelievable outpouring of support from our beautiful customers, we cannot put our operations in front of the safety of our staff.”

Effective Saturday, April 4th at 8 pm – both locations will close and the Billittier family will re-evaluate in May what their next plans will be.
