Signature restaurant closes suddenly
Signature Devonport restaurant Dixie Browns has closed suddenly after just over two years in business.
The restaurant ceased trading at its prominent Victoria Rd site on 26 August.
It had been a difficult decision as “we loved Devonport and loved the site,” a Dixie Browns spokesperson told the Flagstaff. However, it had become “very logistically difficult” operating with four restaurants in the group.
The company had decided to retrench back to its Dixie Browns in Taupo and Mt Maunganui and the Oyster and Chop restaurant in the Viaduct Basin, the spokesperson said.
At this stage, it is not known what will happen to the vacant space and the spokesperson did not have any details on how long Dixie Browns had to run on its lease. “But it is such a beautiful spot, I’m sure it will open again pretty soon with something else,” the spokesperson said. Any customer loyalty cards can be redeemed at the other Dixie Browns locations.
Customer queries are being directed to the Dixie Browns website.
