Prime Time Again
Monday brings more ongoing trials rather than triumphs for local restaurateur and former Top Chef contestant Timothy Dean. Dean filed for bankruptcy in May for his former ventures, Timothy Dean Bistro and T.D. Lounge. Now The Sun is reporting that his Prime Steakhouse (reviewed in City Paper last week) is scheduled to go up for bank foreclosure auction on Sept. 16. Jonathan Melnick Auctioneers and E.T. Newell describe the property as “6,700+ square foot building zoned B-2-2″ and “a deposit of $25,000 in cash or certified funds at time and place of auction sale” is required of interested parties.
The Baltimore Business Journal reports, however, that Dean intends to “fight” foreclosure, resorting to declaring Chapter 11 again, if necessary. What a long strange trip this is becoming.
