A reader tells us that Chatham Restaurant (no relationship to adjacent Chatham Square Restaurant, which remains open) has been temporarily shuttered by the Department of Health. Strangely, no violations were recorded during a January inspection, which might explain why Just an hour ago, employees were milling around in what you might call a state of “sticker shock.” They might want to jump on one of the Atlantic City buses outside, to make back whatever tip money they’re going to lose while management puts its house in order.

Update: A few hours after this post the stickers were down and a sign on the door indicated the restaurant would reopen on Saturday, July 5.
