NEW YORK -- Red Lobster has identified more than 100 restaurants that could be in danger of closing, and its Times Square location is reportedly on the list.

The company filed for bankruptcy last month, saying it had more than $1 billion in debt and less than $30 million on hand. 

To survive, the chain says it needs to close dozens of restaurants, in addition to nearly 50 that have already shut down.

The Times Square location will have to close if it can't renegotiate its lease, CNN reports.

CBS New York reached out to Red Lobster for a comment but has not heard back.

Red Lobster opened its first restaurant in 1968 in Lakeland, Florida and currently has more than 700 locations worldwide.
