A Schenectady restaurant has been shut down, after it failed to pay taxes.
Café Nola, located at 617 Union St., was seized in recent days by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, according to a bright orange notice displayed on the front window. The business owes nearly $53,000, according to warrants listed on the state’s tax warrant database.
There are six separate warrants listed for Café Nola, with the oldest dating to April 2014.
Kevin and Robin Brown opened the restaurant in 2010. Café Nola serves a variety of Cajun specialties and American food, including jambalaya, shrimp and grits, gumbo and more.
Neither the restaurant's voicemail greeting nor its website mentioned its recent closure, as of Monday.
Café Nola isn’t the first Union Street business the state has seized this year. In August, the Bier Abbey, at 613 Union St., was shut down after failing to pay nearly $700,000 in sales tax. It reopened about a month later.
