Another restaurant in Eldon Square's Grey Quarter bites the dust - Chiquitos. Always seemed one of the more popular ones too. Can see half of the Quarter being boarded up in six months time. As for owners Intu, they're on life support right now.

Can't imagine the economic devastation the pandemic will leave behind, especially on the high street. Can only hope we get through it quickly.
