The restaurant shutdown/curfew due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus is just too much for the White Rooster in Toms River to handle.

Of course, you remember The White Rooster was featured on Gordon Ramsay's television show, "24 Hours to Hell and Back".

After the episode aired, business did improve, but still remained slow.

Today, Patty posted on the restaurant's Facebook page that the White Rooster will officially be closing down.

We wish Patty and her family nothing but the best for the future.

As of today Caneda’s White Rooster will be closed and will not reopen. I ask that you continue to support small businesses and buy local because you are keeping someone’s dream alive. Life is so short and all we want to do is make it the best it can be. Some of us take a risk because there is nothing else that will make us complete and proud of ourselves. I am one of those people. I won’t stop dreaming. I won’t stop trying and I hope you will see me again..........someday. I was so close.
Thank you for all the love,
Patty Caneda.
