RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Another restaurant in downtown Richmond has shut its doors. Long-time Jackson Ward landmark, Croaker's Spot was shut down by the state this month.

According to a sign on the front door from the Virginia Department of Taxation, the restaurant was closed because it owes more than $43,000 in unpaid taxes.

Our calls to management were not returned, but a note also on the front door says they closed for restructuring.

General manager, Enjoli Moon, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch the restaurant was in talks with the state about delinquent taxes and, "we're deciding what we want to do next."

Croaker's Spot has been open at that location since 2001. In December, Croaker's Spot opened a second location on Hull Street. That business is still open.
