it opened back in August
, the 12th Street Diner
(1137 Washington Avenue
) hosted a "grand opening" of sorts
on Friday night. Here's an early look at the exterior of the diner and some of its menu choices.
The diner is open 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday. It's open 24 hours on weekends, and closes at 3 p.m. on Sundays.
The owner of 12th Street Diner, Eyad Tammas
, also operated Copia Urban Winery
, which was gutted by fire
; the police determined it was arson, and the man charged with the crime was a former employee
. He was later sentenced to five years in prison
Perhaps the most interesting item for some, spotted on the menu on Friday night, is the "BLAT," a traditional bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on wheat, in which the "A" stands for avocado.
