Fork Chops House out; Eureka!Burger in

The acclaimed Fork Chops House (ne The Three Forks Chop House), which has been closed due to a kitchen fire in December 2008, will not be reopening in its Claremont Packing House location.

Co-owner Mark Bollinger said the restaurant didn’t have enough money to reopen because its insurance company refused to pay business interruption fees.

Redlands-based Eureka!Burger is scheduled to move into the space at 580 W. First St. in late fall or early winter.
