Delmonico's Diner (4909 Delmar Boulevard; 314-361-9073)
will be closed until February 2012, when it will reopen under new management, according to the sign posted on the front door.
It's unclear when the closing occurred. A trusted Gut Check operative was unable to reach the restaurant beginning last week. When I stopped by the restaurant just now, two cars parked in front of the restaurant, read the sign and then drove off, suggesting that news of the closing has yet to spread very far.
Eva Bobo, who founded Delmonico's in the 1960s, passed away in 2005. Dorothy Dunn, her niece had been running the restaurant since her death.
More as I learn it.
