Rio Ferdinand-backed Manchester restaurant Rosso closes

Rio Ferdinand-backed Manchester restaurant Rosso has announced its closure after almost 14 years.

In a statement confirming it had held its last service on Sunday (17 September) the restaurant's owners said "we always believed we should close Rosso on a high".

The restaurant had opened in 2009 in Spring Gardens, attracting a celebrity clientele.

A statement issued to the restaurant's social media accounts read: "It wasn't an easy decision to close this wonderful restaurant which has flourished into an icon of the Manchester restaurant and social scene.

It feels like the right time to go out at the height of our popularity and look ahead to new horizons.

"Rosso wouldn't have been the same without our wider family, suppliers and our wonderful customers whom we have had the enviable pleasure of serving.

"We could not be more grateful to our Champions League-winning staff both past and present. Our thanks go out to each and every one of them for making Rosso what we are today."
