A Nashville Cajun restaurant is currently closed for business with a sign hanging on the front door indicating taxes have not been paid.
The sign posted on the front door says "seized for non-payment of Tennessee state taxes."
The business's owner, John "Chappy" Chapman, made headlines earlier this year for an appearance on the reality show Kitchen Nightmares.
The show aired battles with Chef Gordon Ramsay.
In one scene, Chapman appeared to bash Nashvillians who didn't enjoy his food. However, Ramsay said it wasn't Nashvillians but Chappy's food that was the problem.
It's unclear if the restaurant was closed permanently, but Chapman posted on Facebook:
"I love Nashville. Nashville's been great to us, and we love all our customers!" he stated. "This is a very sad day since we have worked so hard. We shouldn't have done Kitchen Nightmares. We have spent several months struggling to come out of a negative situation. Plans are forthcoming right now, and in the meantime we are taking a break and spending time with family. Thank you."
The downtown restaurant opened in 2006.
Chapman moved his restaurant to Nashville after his original location on the Gulf Coast was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
