WESTFIELD, NJ — Addams Tavern, which is undergoing court-ordered renovations, may re-open in September, according to Chip Grabowski, CEO of Harvest Restaurant Group. The restaurant at 115 Elm St. has been closed since December. Recently, firefighters extinguished a minor fire on one of the building's terraces. 

“We are really hoping to re-open by the end of September,” Grabowski said.

“I have to tell you, though,” Grabowski said, “Out of all the communities we’re in, Westfield has been incredible.”

And finally, to our wonderful Addams Tavern employees — we can’t thank you enough for your patience and fortitude. We look forward to this grand re-opening with you and beside you every step of the way.”
