Du-par’s attempt to revive the Georgetown Square Hamburger Hamlet location didn’t get off the ground in time to save the restaurant from closing on Friday night.
Hamburger Hamlet filed for bankruptcy in April and auctioned off most of the equipment inside 8,500-square-foot restaurant (10400 Old Georgetown Rd.) on Friday.
Du-par’s owner W.W. “Biff” Naylor, who joined with the chain last year and made it into a 24-hour diner, hoped to renegotiate the lease.
That didn’t happen in time, as a sign on the window reads “Closed Lost Lease.”
