After 26 years of operation, the Angélica Grill steakhouse served its last meals this week before closing its doors for good. The announcement of the closure of activities was made in a post on social media on Tuesday, the 2nd.
According to the text, the restaurant says goodbye “in the circumstances of this delicate post-pandemic moment”. Opened in November 1996, it was located on the corner of Avenida Angélica and Alameda Barros, in Santa Cecília, in the central region of the capital.
Due to restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic, the steakhouse paused activities in March 2020 and returned to receive the public, with reduced capacity, five months later, in August. Last year, it was closed again between the beginning of March and the end of April. It was about seven months without working, and the house had no delivery.
The address was known for its all-you-can-eat steaks accompanied by a buffet served in a large room with golden decor, marble floors and light upholstery. The movement was usually greater at lunchtime and on Sundays, with tables that served as meeting places and meetings.
Angélica Grill joins a list of restaurants that were part of the gastronomic memory of São Paulo for decades and that were closed due to crises caused by the pandemic, including addresses like Abu-Zuz, Marcel and Pasv.
