Broad Street Diner ready to roll

The landmark at Broad and Ellsworth Streets reopens Thursday.

Broad Street Diner ready to roll


Where do you get a grilled cheese sandwich or eggs or a salad at 3 a.m. on South Broad Street?

Come Dec. 8, you'll have the Broad Street Diner at Broad and Ellsworth Streets, reopening that morning (around 7 a.m.) and promising 24-hour service.

The Broad Street closed about five years ago and has just sat there, on the southern doorstep to the Avenue of the Arts. A few years ago, Stephen Starr signed an agreement for it but later walked away.

Now in charge is diner king Michael Petrogiannis, whose collection includes the Melrose, Mayfair, Country Club, Warminster West, and Tiffany.
