Updated: Amarillo Restaurant Officially Closed, Building For Sale
The quickest way to lose your business is not to pay your employees. That was step number one for Grill Italia. They had announced earlier that their place was closing but owner, Pepi Osmani, promised it was temporary.
He was out of the country when the temporary closing was announced on their Instagram. He said he was working on fixing the issues and they would have another grand opening when he returned.
However, I was contacted over the weekend by another Amarillo restaurant owner letting me know this is not a temporary move. The location has been listed for sale. Doesn't seem very temporary to me.
Oh, and if a contract is signed soon they can get an even better deal. Looks like someone is trying to get rid of this place and fast.
According to the listing, you can check it out HERE.

For a restaurant that just opened in February of this year, it seems they spent more time closed than actually opened. This may have been one of the fastest opens and shuts in Amarillo history. So congratulations on that.
I don't even think the owner, Pepi Osmani, has had a chance to make it back into the country from dealing with his family emergency.
