As the owners of the restaurant announced at the beginning of the month, and as many expected since the space went on the market last fall, the Empire Diner closed this weekend after 35 years in business. Though the owners said farewell on their blog on Saturday—"Come to us, Pilgrim, and take sustenance for Body and Soul on this day of Leave Taking and Goodbyes"—they hosted a wrap up party yesterday from 2 - 8 PM for the hardcore regulars. Sounds like it was no Florent-like sendoff, but it was a sendoff nonetheless. Now it's time to ready for the Coffee Shop spinoff.
