Months after a devastating fire destroyed the longtime home of J&M Diner in Framingham, the beloved restaurant will reopen in a new location. The restaurant will move into 50 Worcester Rd. when its current occupant, Big Fresh, closes down later this month, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.

J&M has been closed since March, when 10 other businesses in the same Old Path Village Plaza in Framingham were shut down following a massive fire, as previously reported. J&M had been open since 1998, with owners Dave and Karen Fiore hosting a regular crop of customers from the neighborhood and beyond. The new location was revealed Thursday morning through a live video on J&M Diner’s Facebook page.

The J&M team will take over the Big Fresh space next week and will aim to reopen by October.
