I talked to Cheryl Townsend, owner of Red Springs Cafe and Catering, which is running the food operation at the diner, and she said, “We restructured and brought in a better working staff.”
They’ve added some new menu items, too, she said, but you’ll still find her signature Southern cuisine and diner favorites. The diner is now open from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sun. It’s closed on Saturdays.
And starting next month, the diner, at 400 E. Saratoga St., will have a dessert happy hour from 4-5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.
In addition to its starring role in other movies like Tin Man and Liberty Heights, the diner has been a vocational training ground for students through the Chesapeake Center for Youth Development. The building was donated to the city by Barry Levinson after the filming of Diner.
It’s nice to know this iconic Baltimore landmark continues its storied past.
Check out Baltimore magazine senior editor Evan Serpick’s blog post about the movie Diner being named “the most influential movie of the last 30 years.”
