Downtown Atlantic - What happened?

Sad to see that Downtown Atlantic, one of the upscale Atlantic Avenue food pioneers and fave cupcake-maker, has closed. Anyone know what happened and, more importantly, where the cupcake chef flew off to?

Joins other recent thoroughfare closures Blue Marble and La Mancha...many fine dessert options gone. (Of course, Peter's Ice Cream Cafe is still a fond memory!)

  1. I have no info or back story but it has been closed since the summer. At first there was the "closed for renovations" sign but it became obvious that nothing was happening. Why do people do that? Months ago I thought I'd seen signs that they were still baking in the cellar but I'm not at all certain.
