Last year I wrote an article entitled Sui Generis regarding the planning (or lack of it) at the then Pizza & Prosecco restaurant on Cinque Ports Street. The article prompted lots of opinions and comments. The business continued to trade and, occupying such a bold corner plot position, should have attracted lots of passing trade and prospered as a result. But it seems, without warning, all of a sudden this new venture ceased trading and there followed posters appearing in the windows advertising vacancies for staff for a variety of positions.
As far as I know the business never reopened but in its place appeared Babaganoush, advertising itself as “A taste of the Mediterranean”. New signage appeared but the old Pizza & Prosecco swinging wall sign remained in situ and now, Babaganoush has closed too. I tried to contact the owners on the number on their website to talk to them about the restaurant but there was no answer.
Regretably it seems Rye now has an empty premises and one less business available, a sign of the times perhaps?
