HEIDELBERG, Germany — The T.G.I. Friday’s restaurant on Patrick Henry Village will permanently close its doors Jan. 31, according to officials at U.S. Army Garrison Heidelberg.
The one USAG Heidelberg spokesman working on Friday said he didn’t know the reason behind the closing. He said he didn’t know how long the restaurant had been operating.
“Another casual dining facility, probably Winger’s, will replace it,” Thomas Heiff said.
The new restaurant could open in March, if everything went well, he said.
T.G.I. Friday’s offered cocktails along with a large menu of nachos, burgers, ribs, sandwiches, desserts and other items.
Winger’s also offers specialty drinks, according to its Web site but has a different concept: “The compact size and simple menu (50-60 items) makes Winger’s extremely cost-effective to own, open and operate,” the site says.
