Four months after receiving a failing health department rating, Chattanooga's Genghis Grill closed for business today.

In an email sent to members of Genghis Grill's Khan Club, the restaurant chain said it had closed its restaurant at 138 Market St. just across the street from the Tennessee Aquarium.

A sign posted on the door of the downtown restaurant said, "We will be closed until further notice - Management."

The closing comes during the traditionally slower winter months for restaurants near the aquarium and other local tourist attractions.

Officials with the Dallas-based restaurant chain that operates were not immediately available today to say whether the restaurant will reopen in the future or not. 

The Chattanooga restaurant was one of eight Genghis Grills in Tennessee

In August, Genghis Grill received a health score of 57 that included eight critical violations. The restaurant corrected the problems and a week later upgraded its score to 93, however.
