But make way for Bohemian. Way back in October, I reported on a venture by Club Charles owner Joy Martin, who was planning to open a diner with a ’30s sci-fi, Buck Rogers theme in the Station North area.
She said Christina DiAngelo would take over cooking duties. DiAngelo had been the chef at the now closed Zodiac, which also was owned by Joy. Christina has been keeping busy anyway and is preparing dinners at Club Charles Wednesday through Saturday.
But what about the diner? I finally caught up with Joy, who said she is "going in other directions." The building, in the 1700 block of Charles Street, will be leased to other people, and the operation will be a "basic diner, a ham-and-eggs joint," she said. It will not be an offshoot of Zodiak, she stressed.
In the meantime, Joy has set her sights on another project near Club Charles; this time, a coffee shop called Bohemian. It will feature old-fashioned cups of Joe and have a vegan bakery. She wants to get back all those customers she may have lost when Zodiac had to shut down because of a ruptured gas line last August, she said. I’ll keep you posted on the new place.
