Hi there. Does anyone know when and why Wild Scallion in Middletown closed? A colleague at The Asbury Park Press is looking into abandoned buildings in Monmouth and Ocean counties, including this one.

Start with Wild Scallions and move immediately to what was supposed to be The Mad Hatter in Sea Bright.
Having worked in Atlantic Highlands for years and passing by on an almost daily basis, I’ve always wanted the sign!
They’ve been closed for at least 15 years. It was The Lobsterman (and probably at least one other place) before the Wild Scallion.
People forget that when the Wild Scallion was in operation, most of its parking was where Wawa is now. As it stands, the current lot has room for maybe 4-5 cars (and zero street parking) forever preventing another restaurant from moving in.
