HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A national restaurant company has shut down one of its two Richmond outposts as it works to reorganize under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The Fox & Hound Sports Tavern at 7502 W. Broad St. in the Merchant’s Walk shopping center closed as a result of the recent bankruptcy filing of Dallas-based Last Call Guarantor LLC, which also owns the Bailey’s Pub & Grille and Champps Kitchen & Bar restaurant brands.

Another Fox & Hound location at 11581 Robious Road in Chesterfield’s Huguenot Village Shopping Center remains open and is listed on the company’s website.

Both the West End and Chesterfield restaurants were Bailey’s locations before they were changed to Fox & Hounds about a year ago. Last Call also operated a Champps at Stony Point Fashion Park, which it closed in February 2014.

A rogue shopping cart from the nearby Food Lion, an American flag still mounted on the front flag pole, and a broom stand inside the shadows of the empty restaurant were all that remained of the West Broad Street location Friday afternoon.

The signs, which once fronted West Broad Street and the parking lot, have also been removed. The location has also been removed from the Fox & Hound website.
