Kolkata: "Sourav`s: The Food Pavilion" owned and managed by the former Indian cricket captain downed its shutters for the last time Monday.
The five-storeyed multi-cuisine restaurant-cum-lounge bar in the city`s upmarket Park Street had not been doing well since it was launched in 2004, sources in the fine-dining facility said.
However, Ganguly`s brother Snehasish said the decision to close down Sourav`s was taken as they were not able to devote sufficient time.
"Sourav is very busy. I am also busy. We were not getting time to run it properly. So we took this business decision," Snehasish said.
The more famous Ganguly brother is now away in England doing television commentary.
Snehasish said all the employees will get their dues.
While initially Sourav Ganguly only allowed his name to be used for the facility in exchange for royalty, he took over the ownership and management two years later.
