This morning The Washingtonian's Anna Spiegel gets some details on the diner that chef Bryan Voltaggio casually mentioned he was working on last month when he announced his recently opened sandwich spot Lunchbox. So what's the deal with this diner?
Well, there's no name for it yet, but it'll be located in a retrofitted car dealership, the price will be "moderate." The menu might include things like meatloaf and fried chicken, as well as breakfast foods like egg sandwiches and pancakes. Voltaggio explains to Spiegel his motivation to open a diner:
"I noticed chain restaurants packed full of families. People want something easy where they can throw their family in the car, park outside, and have a quick meal."
The goal is to open up by April. Meanwhile, his Chevy Chase restaurant Range is scheduled for late summer 2012 and the North Market Kitchen will be the last to open in 2012.
