Latin-Asian Fusion Restaurant Closing in Grand Rapids
A Latin-Asian fusion restaurant that opened in Grand Rapids in January 2018 has shut its doors for good.
The Grand Rapids Business Journal reports that Georgina's at 724 Wealthy St. SE. has permanently closed.
In a post to Facebook, the owner and chef Anthony “Tony” Craig thanked those who supported him and said the closing was due to his "well being and current business ventures in Traverse City."
Craig also owns Georgina's on Front Street in Traverse City, which opened in 2013.
According to the Grand Rapids Business Journal, this past summer Georgina’s LLC was sued by a former employee of the Traverse City location.
The suit alleges Craig engaged in “sex discrimination” and “inappropriate physical contact” with female employees at the Traverse City restaurant. Craig's lawyer says his client denies the allegations. The suit is currently in the discovery period and no court date has been set yet.
