I have written about Dan’s Diner of Spencertown, NY twice in the past year and a half. The first was in my “Notes from the Hotline, 11/15/08” where I told about the diner finally opening after a lengthy restoration. See it here at….. https://dinerhotline.wordpress.com/2008/11/15/notes-from-the-hotline-111508/
Then in April of last year I followed up with a report of its sudden closing, see it here at…. https://dinerhotline.wordpress.com/2009/04/28/dans-diner-closed-already/
Within the last 2 weeks I received a comment on the second post from Dottie “Lou” Kratt about her hopefully happy news on what’s going on with Dan’s Diner. I asked her to elaborate with some more info for this post on Diner Hotline. Here is what she wrote…
As far as I know, Jennifer Strome opened the diner in November of 2008 and closed the second week in January 2009. It has remained closed until our opening, hopefully March 2, 2010. We will open Wednesday thru Friday 6am to 2pm and Saturday and Sunday 7am to 2pm. Serving breakfast from 6 to 11:00 and lunch 11:30am-2:00pm. We will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays. In the summer we will also be serving lunch on our patio. We will be serving daily specials, including soup-of-the-day. We are also developing a line of frozen home-cooked dinners under the label of “What’s for Dinner?”. If you have any questions, let us know. Oh yeah, it will be under the new management of Jamie Abitabile and Dottie “Lou” Kratt.
Thanks for taking interest in our new venture.
I would like to wish Lou Kratt and Jamie Abitabile good luck with their new endeavor and I hope that they can make a go of it in this beautifully restored 1920’s vintage Jerry O’Mahony diner!
