Breaking: Seymour Burton DOH’d

Seymour Burton, as if it needed any more trouble (they’ve been struggling with business somewhat, despite having built a cult following amongst burger lovers), has now been closed by the Department of Health. We reached co-owner Adam Cohn, who explained, “The biggest thing is a paperwork problem. We never changed the D/B/A line on our food handler’s permit, and it still says Le Tableau, which was the name of the former space. It’s a big hassle to get it straightened out.” He adds that there were also some “minor violations” — placement of handsinks, screen doors, and refrigerators not draining properly were some examples mentioned — that need to be fixed. Cohn says that he hopes to have the restaurant back open by next week.
