We stopped in here for breakfast on Monday morning. My corned beef hash was some of the best I’ve ever had. The Worcester semi streamliner has to be my favorite model of diner, and this one is in great shape. Great food in a great building in a great location. What’s not to love?
I later found out that I missed seeing Larry Cultrera (of Diner Hotline and Classic Diners of Massachusetts fame) by a matter of a few hours that day. Funny how those things happen.
I went here a couple of years ago when they were filming a section for “diners drive ins and dives”. I’m just in the background of a shot, I know in the TV version, but I don’t see myself in the youtube edit.
It’s a cool little Comac Dinette, probably the last of its kind, that was remodeled by Randy Garbin’s diner restoration company.
Here are some shots from Inky over at inkyknits.blogspot.com of the recently restored (by Steve Harwin of Diversified Diners) Blue Moon Diner, a 1941 Silk City Diner now located in Hickory Corners, Michigan, at the Gilmore Car Museum. It was originally located in Meridan, CT, and has been at the museum since 2004.
We saw this one in New Jersey, near Carney’s Point. It’s a Silk City. It’s hard to tell precisely what it is, I don’t recall there being any signage on it. A large porch has been added, as has a handicapped ramp, which in conjunction with the roof addition, obscures the majority of the diner. There’s an open/closed sign in the front door and tables on the porch, so I can only assume its still a restaurant of some sort.
A different day, in the pouring rain
These photos were sent to me by my father, who recently took a trip with musician Barry Louis Polisar to Philadelphia to visit Nancy Heller, Professor of Art History at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
The clock which used to hang above the Melrose counter until the mural was installed, I believe sometime in the 1970s. I bought and restored the clock after finding it listed on ebay several years ago.
