Editor’s note: this article has been updated to clarify that Criollo was closed prior to the posting of a notice from the Health Department.

Criollo, the Peruvian restaurant that opened on East Gay Street in October 2018, is now closed. The restaurant had been open intermittently for several weeks, closing permanently at the end of February.

On Wednesday, March 13, the Health Department posted a notice on Criollo’s door indicating they had not renewed their operating license, the deadline for which was March 1.

Owner Guillermo Perez, who also owns Si Señor, did not respond to a request for comment as of press time. Criollo’s Facebook page has provided no additional information either. Si Señor has three locations – Downtown, on the Scioto Mile and Grandview; they remain open.
