Does anyone know what happened to Matthew's Restaurant (61st and Third Ave? There was a fire at the weekend, but it looks as though it may have been in the building above, but Matthews is closed. Took a look in the window this morning, it is all still set for lunch - complete with half drunk glasses of whatever, overturned chairs, etc - very spooky looking for Halloween! Seriously, no one was hurt I hope. Any info?

  1. HI:

    I walked by Matthew's last night. The windows
    were paper over and there was a sign saying
    that they were closed for renovation as a result
    of the electrical fire...they will be back.
