Luciano's To Close Permanently

• The full version of this story can be found HERE

Luciano’s Restaurant on East Bay Street has announced that it will be permanently closing.

In a statement released on Monday, the business, which has been in operation since 2004, cited the current economic climate, the restaurant’s reliance on the tourist market and the economic uncertainty in the coming months as reasons for the closure.

The statement added: “Despite increased competition in the industry, and a shift in the customer base, Luciano’s management had remained committed to its staff despite mounting losses each month. The economic impact of COVID-19 was the final nail in the coffin, leaving no choice but to close and make its team redundant.

“The sad reality is that the restaurant industry operates on very slim margins, and Luciano’s was no exception. The owners and management team have been struggling to make ends meet for the last couple of years, and have exhausted every avenue to keep the restaurant open and to keep the team employed. Nobody could have predicted the effects from COVID-19 on the economy and, sadly, the fallout has necessitated the permanent closure of the restaurant.

“The restaurant wishes to thank its customers for their support and patronage over the years, and its restaurant team for maintaining the reputation of quality and service that Luciano’s enjoyed.”

Isn't this a Brent Symonwette property?

Congratulations, Tribune, in providing no info whatever: Where the restaurant is located, who owns it, how long it has been in business, its style of fare, how many people worked there, etc., etc.

All you did was post a press release. No other effort whatever. This newspaper is the laziest bunch of shits ever assembled under one roof.

Doesn't really matter if it is closed!

That’s like saying there is no interest in a person’s obituary because they are dead. Why run a story at all, then?

Truth of the matter is they already have plans for this property to correlate with the downturn port development. So they use the Corona pandemic to part with staff

The building and its circular driveway do remind me of the former residence Pop Symonette. I had excellent seafood lunch there with Pop and wife Margaret.

What? No “colony comrade queen’s imperial Bay Streeter red jacket,” etc.? I’m impressed, Tal!

South Abaco's red coat House MP Jimmy, should've completely bypassed OPM's Erica to have addressed his polite letter of inquiry as a succession letter of inquiry to the colony's beloved Queen Liz.
