The Meltdown owner, Michael McMahon, said the closure had been planned for some time and he had been preparing for the inevitable.
“The last few weeks were a blur, I’m just so excited,” he said.
“It’s been a fantastic adventure, we’ve built a new bar in the basement and we’re planning to do something really special in the next few months, I don’t want to spoil it.”
It was my intention to keep doing the restaurant and bring it back to the people, but it just wasn’t the right time.
“McMahon said he planned to reopen the restaurant, but was unsure if he would be able to make the necessary repairs to the original building.”
I had planned on it going to the state, I’d have to work with the planning department, the local council and the local government to make sure it stays where it is,” he told news.com, “but that’s not happening any time soon.””
I’m really excited to have my beloved restaurant back, but I just can’t wait to see what it looks like next time.
“The Meltdowns restaurant is now closed for good, with the doors to be locked down for at least the next three months.
