Red Lobster seeks bankruptcy; no additional closings announced

Red Lobster has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection but there was no immediate word of any additional closings. And it looked like “business as usual” at the Gainesville location (pictured) shortly before noon Monday.

The 56-year-old chain made the filing late Sunday, days after shuttering dozens of restaurants, 87 in all, just a week ago. Three of the “temporarily” closed locations are in Athens, Roswell and Dublin.
