Good news for diner fans! Slim's Diner, the traditional-style diner coming to the corner of Upshur and Georgia is aiming for an early April opening, according to a job posting for general manager.
The spot, from the folks behind Room 11, Upshur Street Books, Petworth Citizen and the sadly closing Crane & Turtle, will be open early and late, like a true diner: from 7am-midnight Sunday through Thursday and 7am-2am Friday and Saturday. Sounds like a good post bar stop.
The job posting also mentions an in-house baker making "pies, cakes, biscuits, brownies, doughnuts and much more." I'm intrigued.
They'll also have a liquor license so you can have things like beer and cocktails with your diner fare.
You can follow their progress on their Facebook page, which has construction photos, architectural details, and more.
Here's their building. I'm excited for early April.
