A South Boston diner that was forced to close over the summer has reopened in a new spot. My Diner debuted in its new location at 399 Main St. in Melrose on Friday, bringing back its comforting menu and neighborhood vibe.
My Diner closed its original South Boston location in June 2016 after 12 years in business, as previously reported. The building was sold to developers with plans to put condominiums up on the property. Though owners Ela and Ben Bashllari attempted to relocate within the neighborhood, they were unable to do so and eventually landed on the new location in Melrose. My Diner made its comeback on Main Street at the end of last week and shared the news in a post on Facebook.
The restaurant is known for serving whipped cream-topped waffles, plenty of eggs, and a whole turkey every day, done up into hash, chili, and more. The new location is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week.
