EL Cortijo recently announced that they are temporarily closing their Winooski restaurant due to a lack of employees. 

On September 23, the restaurant went to a "take-out only" format because of staffing, and have been publicly looking for help since April. 

Here is their post in social media. 

Alas the chronic short staffing bug has caught up with us. Like many in our sector, our amazing team members have been working double time lately.
For the Cortijo restaurants, we have decided to consolidate staff to El Cortijo Burlington, and close down our Winooski location for a period of time.
Better to operate one location in a manner that eases stress and optimizes quality, than try to stretch a country mile to cover two locations. We hope you all understand.
In the meantime YOU can do a few things - thank each and every hospitality worker that you come in contact with. Today (in fact, right this second!) go online and post rave 5-star reviews of your favorite locally owned and operated restaurants.
And as always, treat each other with kindness. Gracias.
