Before Chris Posner dropped off the keys to his recently shuttered restaurant, he put on a hat and sunglasses. He didn’t want to be recognized as he went to the building that housed his former business, Hannah and Mason’s restaurant in Cranbury, N.J.
“I was embarrassed,” he said.
Posner, 39, and his business had been featured on prime-time Fox television’s “Kitchen Nightmares” in 2008. He said he believes that the show didn’t necessarily hurt business, but it didn’t help either.
