"At this point in time, we're not sure what if any effects it's going to have on us," said Lisa Stenstrom, controller of Sterling Restaurant Management Group, which does business as Bennigan's Grill and Tavern in Moorhead.

"Our plan right now is just to remain open with business as usual," she said.

S & A Restaurant Corp. and affiliates Steak & Ale and Bennigan's Grill and Tavern restaurants have filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, according to a statement from Leah Templeton, company spokeswoman.

Stores operated by franchisees, such as the Moorhead location, are not named as debtors in the filings, Templeton said in a statement.

The Forum previously reported that the Fargo Bennigan's restaurant closed June 29. That restaurant closed for unrelated reasons.
