Another business has fallen on hard times in the tough economy.

A petition to wind up RG Ltd, the operator of the restaurant Taste 141, has been filed in the Supreme Court.

However, Taste 141, located in the new Seon Place building on Front Street, remains open.

The restaurant has been taken over by Seon Place Ltd. and the half dozen staff kept on, official Amanda Swan said yesterday.

She said the company expects to eventually find a new operator for Taste 141.

“We will be carrying on as normal, the restaurant is an integral part of the building,” she said.

Reed Young of RG Ltd blamed the recession for the winding up of the bistro, bar and cafe.

“It was a business decision based on today’s economy,” said Mr Young, who owns Docksider Pub & Restaurant.

The winding up petition will be heard on December 14 when any creditor or contributor may appear to make a case. Wakefield Quin are the attorneys.
