Stortfords Chimichanga restaurant shuts
Tex-Mex restaurant Chimichanga in Bishops Stortford has closed its doors for good after six years.
The North Street eatery, which specialised in Mexican and American cuisines, has been cleared of its tables and seats since Friday.
A search on the Chimichanga website for the closest branch to Stortford flags up the one at Braintree’s Freeport shopping village, 18 miles away.
Chimichanga is part of the Prezzo Holdings group, which also operates the Prezzo, Caffe Uno, MEXIco and Cleaver restaurant brands. There is a Prezzo directly opposite the closed Chimichanga.
The property at 2-4 North Street, which until 1999 was menswear shop Barretts, was formerly Italian-styled eatery Caffé Uno and then French bistro Brasserie Gerard. In December 2011 the restaurant reopened as Chimichanga – named after the stuffed and deep-fried tortillas of Mexican cuisine.
