‘Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio Closing His Restaurants In Effort To Slow The Spread Of Coronavirus
Top Chef star Tom Colicchio is closing all of his restaurants in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus (also known as COVID-19).
The entertainment industry, like everything else, has been completely rocked by the outbreak and many regions are asking their bars and restaurants to close as people begin social distancing.
On Instagram over the weekend, Colicchio revealed that although it was a “tough” decision, he had no other choice than to close his restaurants.
“Today I’ve made the hardest decision I’ve ever faced in my 40 years in this industry, to temporarily close Craft and our family of restaurants in NYC and L.A as well as our corporate office after dinner service this evening,” he wrote, according to Bravo’s Daily Dish. “We are taking our lead from the science community, public health agencies, and the federal, state, and local leaders who have made it clear: the time for collective, coordinated action is now.”
All all-star Top Chef premieres March 19 at 9/8c on Bravo.
