Closed "For Renovation" - Why Does This Nearly Always Happen?


Recommended Posts

Not closed permanently...or so the owner says.

I went to summer camp with Chef Dennis and this therefore makes me sad, but looks like they are permanently close. Dennis--good luck on your next venture.

Could someone in the business please explain for us why, if it's absolutely clear that a restaurant isn't going to reopen, they say "Closed for renovations?" Is it to stave off creditors? Are there some other reasons?

I can see an owner wanting to hang on until all possible avenues have been explored, but this happens nearly *every time* a restaurant closes.

So what are the possible reasons a restaurant would do this?
