ANOTHER Winnipeg restaurant — this time a high-profile Osborne Village eatery — is closing permanently. It had been closed during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

Segovia, known for its Spanish-influenced small plates, announced on its Instagram account Wednesday it is going out of business.

“We are terribly sad to let you know that we have made the difficult decision to close the big wooden doors at Segovia permanently,” the statement read. “We will miss this little restaurant and cherish the memories that were made here.

“We are sad that we didn’t get to have a really good closing up party and that we served our last service without knowing that it was our last.”

Hello. We are terribly sad to let you know that we have made the difficult decision to close the big wooden doors at Segovia permanently. We want to thank all of our staff, suppliers and guests for making Segovia such a beautiful and special place for us all. We will miss this little restaurant and cherish the memories that were made here. We are sad that we didn?t get to have a really good closing up party and that we served our last service without knowing that it was our last. We are so proud to have been a part of Winnipeg?s inspiring culinary scene for over a decade. Thank you for having us. All the best to each and every one of you that have graced our tables. May your plates and cups always be full of the good stuff! ?Ol?! We would love if you would drop some of your favourite Segovia memories below in the comments for us ?

Segovia, located at 484 Stradbrook Ave, opened in 2009 when owner/chef Adam Donnelly was just 26 years old.

In 2018, it was named No. 46 on Canada’s Best 100 Restaurants list. Judges lauded the menu’s mix of traditional and contemporary tapas.

Donnelly couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday.

Days ago, Tony Roma’s on Nairn Avenue closed for good, and some in the hospitality industry believe this is only the beginning of a string of permanent restaurant closures owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

In its Instagram post, Segovia paid tribute to its staff, suppliers and guests.

“We are so proud to have been a part of Winnipeg’s inspiring culinary scene for over a decade. Thank you for having us. All the best to each and every one of you that have graced our tables,” the statement read. “May your plates and cups always be full of the good stuff.”
