Del Villaggio Gone?

Passing Broad Street this evening, I noticed the Italian restaurant Del Villaggio was worringly dark, so I went close to find this notice.

Closed until further notice.

Both Del Villaggio restaurants and Del Villaggio trattoria were closed.

Sounds very bad, especially in this season when the restaurants should be heaving with Christmas parties.

I had a dinner in Cafe Ikon. I expected it to be full, but it wasn't. It was busy, but not full.

It could be so just by chance, but under the current economic climate, it was rather worrying.
