Williamsburg pioneer DuMont remains closed, after shuttering abruptly for renovations earlier this month. Now a note on the website reiterates what a representative for the restaurant told Eater several weeks ago: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Dumont is closed for renovations in both the kitchen and garden. We expect to reopen in a short period of time. Please check back for updates."
Over on Bedford Avenue, DuMont Burger remains open and busy as ever. One Eater source whispered that there was a recent staff shakeup in the Dumont empire, but a manager tells Eater that the owners remain the same. Nonetheless, he says the two places operate independently, and he hasn't heard any news from DuMont's end. Eater has reached out to representatives of DuMont, but no update on the progress there yet.
