Chestnut on Smith Street - Are They Out of Business?

BrookBoy | Feb 22, 2012 03:17 AM

My friends and I showed up last night for our dinner at Chestnut where we had a reservation, only to find it shuttered. No signs on the door or window, no menus posted, nothing. Stairs were stacked on the bar, place was dark. It had the feel of having been shut down. Wondering if anyone has any idea.

On the upside, though, Chestnut being shuttered caused us to end up at Battersby, where we had one terrific meal, from the amuse bouche all the way to the desserts. The people at Battersby's are doing some incredible things with food. Too bad it's such a tiny space. It is definitely well worth a visit.
