Victims of the economic maelstrom created in large part by the COVID-19 pandemic continue to mount – at least one of them a venerable business which has fed locals from its Blackhawk Plaza location for the last 30 years.
Blackhawk Grille, a local mainstay from its location at 3540 Blackhawk Plaza Circle had quietly mentioned closing back in March as the threat of pandemic first raised its head.
Locals confirmed that the restaurant’s parent company – Tavistock Restaurant Collection – has quietly called it quits, a CLOSED notation going up on the restaurant’s Yelp page.
Blackhawk Grille arrived on the local restaurant as a fine-dining concept restaurant almost 30 years ago, adopting a more casual look and feel and changing its menu to meet customer demands in 2012. The restaurant offered a popular weekend brunch and bar and offered al fresco seating overlooking the plaza’s pond.
It is the second Blackhawk Plaza restaurant to close this year with Prickly Pear Cantina owner Rodney Worth saying he was closing because of the state’s “harsh business climate” back in January.
