Restaurant Reopens After Being Closed By Health Department

A Madison County restaurant reopens after being closed because of a roach problem.

Madison Garden in downtown Richmond has been closed for nearly a week, after health department inspectors found live roaches inside the restaurant.

Since then, the restaurant's owners have been working hard, hoping to get everything back in order.

The owner, Steve Tilman, says he's switched pest control companies and completely renovated the kitchen in response to being closed down.

Health inspectors went back to Madison Garden today, and did not find any violations.

The restaurant was approved by the health department, and was able to reopen just in time for dinner tonight.

    I don't care how many roaches. The wings are just too good to pass up.

    The cockroaches are now at the humane society and can be adopted next week after they have been nuetered and spayed.

    Cockroaches are a great source of protein.
