Piccadilly plans to close its Northgate Mall restaurant after business on Sunday, according to a company representative.

The company plans to continue to operate its Hamilton Place eatery, the representative said.

Piccadilly Restaurants LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September after debt restructuring talks broke down with its lender, New York-based fund Atalaya Capital Management.

At that time, Baton Rouge, La.-based Piccadilly had about 80 restaurants, over 70 food service operations and roughly 3,500 employees.
