‘It has been an absolute pleasure’: Victoria’s Chorizo & Co. announces they are closing for good


Another restaurant has announced that they are closing their doors for good, just on the heels of Shatterbox Coffee and Smith’s Pub.

This time, it is Chorizo & Co. who have had the unfortunate task of announcing that their restaurant is closing down.

Owners Stephen Quigley and Dave Brooks announced their closure on Tuesday, April 16th via Instagram.

“To all of our followers, it is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that Chorizo & Co. will be closing [its] doors,” wrote Quigley and Brooks.

“We have made the difficult decision to sell the restaurant.” 

The current owners say that they have already found someone to take over their location on Fort Street and that the new owners have a new concept and idea for the space.

Because of this, Chorizo & Co.’s last service will be on Saturday, May 18th, giving them time to pack up and get the space ready to change hands. 

“We would like to say that it has been an absolute pleasure to have had the opportunity to live our dream and operate a restaurant in this city amongst some of the very best,” wrote Quigley and Brooks. 

“We thank every single one of you who have stopped in over the past five and a half years. You’re what made all of this so special.”

Quigley and Brooks hope that those who have enjoyed the space and the food will try to stop in one last time before their closing date, and that those who have never gotten to eat there might come by and try it out before it is gone. 

“Thanks again for being such an incredible community, we truly could not have done it without you,” they concluded.
