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.”
