The Broiler is dark, but the story heats up

The story so far: We learned on Tuesday that the venerable, old-school Broiler restaurant (which opened in 1950) and its “sister” bar-lounge, Gallagher’s Irish Pub, closed unceremoniously over the Labor Day weekend. The only “official” announcement is on the Broiler’s website, “The Broiler is closed,” the “sign” says, with no context.
