      No worries ...TLK only closed temporarily.

        Thanks. Well that was scary! Like alot of places on the midcoast, they take more days off than in the summer.

        Shooley, maybe you should delete this post...purge it out of Chowhound forever!

          Sorry...but it's true...I have it on good authority. I am equally dismayed.

            Holy crap that's horrible. Well Erin, all I can say is come down to Rockland...we'll find room for you here...

        Hey all fellow fans of chef Erin. I know from recently talking with Erin, who is on a much needed break, that she plans on being back in Belfast this summer. Once again making magnificent meals for all to enjoy. I am SO looking forward to it! Keep the faith..stay tuned!

      2. According to their Facebook page, they're gearing up for the summer.

        There's a real disconnect here. If she's bailing, then she should just come out with it on her blog.

          It is closed - for sure. I too have spoken with a very, very reliable source. It is an unfortunate situation but wishing her the best for her future.

            I copied this from TLK's facebook page. Deanna is Erin's mother. Hope this helps put the rumors to rest.

            "Deanna Richardson - TLK is indeed closed, but only temporarily. As Erin's mom, I can tell you that she is looking forward to creating more wonderful meals in the very near future. Will let you know when she returns!"

        2. I hope it's just a bad rumor.I would hate to lose such a wonderful place, in so many ways, from the service to the drinks to the food. It would be sorely missed and a real loss.

          1. Not true, just heard from her. She's just taking a much-needed rest.
