WICHITA — After 13 years in the Cargill building downtown at 151 N. Main, Piccadilly Express has closed.
“Last Friday, Piccadilly was notified that they were not going to make the cut for those being considered to provide food services here in the building,” says Cargill spokesman Mike Martin.
“They were given three weeks’ notice and basically given the notice as soon as it was decided they would not make the cut, and they ceased operations immediately.”
No one with Latour Management, which owned the restaurant, returned calls for comment.
This is the latest restaurant in what has become the dismantling of a dining dynasty in Wichita.
Latour’s Chelsea’s Bar & Grill and Olive Tree Bistro were evicted from Comotara Center late last year.
The west-side Piccadilly closed in 2005.
The east-side Piccadilly and Bagatelle Bakery are the only restaurants Latour has left.
