If you guessed that the two-alarm fire that caused an estimated $300,000 in damages has shut down GaGa Seafood Restaurant in Chinatown, you'd be right. However according to information from a neighborhood authority, GaGa plans to reopen. Eater has been told that the restaurant's kitchen and exhaust need to be completely rebuilt, which of course "may take a while."
The Globe previously reported that "the fire spread into the ductwork inside the kitchen and then traveled upward and extended the fire to each floor," and the fire department tweeted that the cause was a stove that had been "left on overnight." There's no word yet as to how the fire has affected the many creatures that live in the GaGa live tanks, but then again things didn't look so good for them under normal circumstances. If you have a tip about GaGa, tipline it up.
