Danbury’s Black Angus Grill ‘temporarily closed until further notice’

February 2, 2019

DANBURY — The city’s Black Angus Grill is temporarily closed “until further notice,” according to a sign on the front door of the business Saturday.

The sign indicated that the closure was due to a water pipe that burst because of the inclement weather.

“We are attempting to restore the water as quickly as possible but we are temporarily closed until further notice,” the sign reads. “We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you soon.”

The eatery made headlines last month after a rash of food-related illness complaints, a bulk of which came from patrons of Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill at 5 Eagle Road in Danbury, city Health and Human Services Director Lisa Morrissey said back in January.

City health officials confirmed that norovirus — a highly contagious virus that can come from an infected person or contaminated food, water or surfaces — was the cause.

After that confirmation, the restaurant voluntarily shut its doors for 24 hours and reopened under the supervision of the city health department.
