Signs come down at Giordano's restaurant in Uptown

It appears the restaurant has closed for good.

The signs at Giordano's in Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood have been taken down, signaling the restaurant has closed. 

The change at the restaurant was noticed by Twin Cities radio host Dana Wessel on Tuesday. 

Bring Me The News has reached out to the Chicago-based pizza chain for confirmation but hasn't heard back. The Uptown location, at 2700 Hennepin Ave., is no longer listed on the company's website. However, the Richfield location is still open

The closure doesn't come as much of a surprise. In July, the restaurant was facing eviction because it owed roughly $40,000 to Nolan Properties Group after failing to pay rent in May and June. 

It's unclear what type of impact the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent business closures had on the Uptown pizza shop. The restaurant had been temporarily closed for months prior to the eviction notice, the Business Journal said.

The Uptown restaurant marked the Chicago-based deep-dish pizza chain Giordano's first foray into Minnesota in 2015. The Richfield location opened in 2016.
