COVID Leads Two Prime Atlantic City Restaurants to Close

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Two highly regarded restaurants in Atlantic City will remain closed permanently, victims of the coronavirus and the restrictions that came with it.

Philadelphia restaurateur Stephen Starr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Buddakan and The Continental will not reopen. They have been closed since mid-March.

Both were inside the former Playground Pier, which Caesars Entertainment recently repurchased. The pier has had extremely low levels of foot traffic and a majority of its stores have been empty for more than a year.

The two restaurants employed more than 100 people, who were notified late Monday that the businesses would not reopen.

Starr said that “it was a nice run, but we had to say goodbye." He operates high-profile restaurants in Philadelphia, New York, Washington and Paris that remain in business.
