Plenty of folks were sad to see the closing of the Diner on Clifton in 2016
after 17 years of dishing up efficient, delicious diner fare. Almost immediately, owner Perry Drosos said he'd be looking for a new location to reopen the venerable institution.
Well, today was that day. After two years of waiting, the new diner officially reopened at 11 a.m. in Lakewood, just across the border from Cleveland, home to the original spot.
The Dinerbar on Clifton, so named because the new location sports a bar and liquor license, can be found at 11801 Clifton in the former Clifton Medical Arts Building, which Drosos also owns.
With 2,200 square feet and an expansive patio, the new spot will be dishing up its welcoming mix of diner fare, including breakfast, lunch, brunch and home-style suppers.
