The damage from Hurricane Sandy is still being assessed and one of Atlantic City's historic restaurants has taken more damage than can be repaired safely. Scales Grill & Deck Bar was built during World War II and has been a favorite dining and drinking location for many. Here's hoping the owners get enough insurance to rebuild.


GARDNER'S BASIN — A restaurant in historic Gardner's Basin in Atlantic City that suffered severe damage during Hurricane Sandy will be torn down next month, according to a report.

The Press of Atlantic City reported that the storm caused structural damage to the foundation of the building that houses the Scales Grill & Deck Bar, which was formerly called the Flying Cloud Cafe. So the building is a total loss, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
