Rio Ferdinand's restaurant popular with celebrities including One Direction to shut down
Rio Ferdinands popular Italian restaurant has been forced to close its doors just two years after a huge makeover.
The restaurant, located in Manchester city centre, had been a popular evening spot for a number of celebrities including pop band One Direction. It had been open since November 2009 and only underwent a lucrative refurbishment two years ago.
However, a statement on Instagram has confirmed that the eatery has already been forced to cease business. It read: It is with mixed emotions that we announce the closure of our Rosso Restaurant & Bar. Last night, after nearly 14 years, we were delighted to hold a final service for our wonderful customers.
It wasnt an easy decision to close this wonderful restaurant which has flourished into an icon of the Manchester restaurant and social scene. It feels like the right time to go out at the height of our popularity and look ahead to new horizons.
