Casual Dining Group (CDG) has closed its Manchester branch of La Tasca, leaving it with four UK sites under the tapas concept.

A spokesperson told the Manchester Evening News: “As part of our on-going business, we do from time to time identify a site that may no longer have a long-term future in our estate.

“After careful consideration, the decision has been made to cease trading at the La Tasca site in the Trafford Centre.

“Although the consultation process with our team is ongoing we have already redeployed the majority of our employees to our other local restaurants within the group, including our sister Spanish restaurant brand La Vina, which is located in Deansgate.”
