Restaurant Bricco will be closed until April 6, chef/owner Billy Grant said Monday, after he received a positive COVID-19 test over the weekend.

“I’m doing everything I can properly in the restaurant,” Grant told We-Ha.com Monday. He’s also committed to being transparent with the public.

Grant said he immediately informed the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District after receiving his positive test result, and was instructed to close the restaurant through the Easter holiday.

Grant has already received his first Pfizer shot, he said, but still has another dose to go plus the 14-day wait following the second dose before the full effectiveness of the vaccine is reached. He said he is feeling okay, just a bit achy and run down.

This is the second time this month Restaurant Bricco has had to close due to COVID-19. The restaurant reopened March 26 after closing on March 18 due to two positive cases among employees.

Bricco Trattoria in Glastonbury is not impacted.
