Salem State University Is Reopening the Salem Diner
An historic diner on the North Shore that closed a few months ago is on its way back--and the university that bought the property is behind its reopening.
The Salem News is reporting that Salem State University is planning to reopen the Salem Diner, with Chartwells (which has the school's food service contract) running the place. The diner closed after the university purchased the diner property this summer, but now it looks like it could be up and running once again--possibly in early January of 2014.
[January 16, 2014 update: A new article in The Salem News states that the Salem Diner is now open once again.]
The article says that the diner, which was built in 1941 and is on the National Register of Historic Places, was a favorite of Johnny Pesky, a Boston Red Sox icon who passed away in August of 2012.
The address for the Salem Diner is 70 Loring Avenue, Salem, MA, 01970.
