Star Diner - Rumford, RI

After the tragic fire at the Station Nightclub in Rhode Island, several laws have either changed or been enacted in an attempt to prevent something like this from ever happening again. Complying with all the regulations is a necessary, but time consuming and expensive process which can delay an opening. As that topic is beyond the scope of this posting, you should seek the advice of professionals. Back in July 2007 we heard that preparations were being made to reopen the Star Diner. We weren't sure what to make of it, as every time we went by the diner it seemed to always look the same. A reader passed along to us that they had driven by the diner and noticed Christmas lights on, although the diner didn't appear to be open.

After stopping at the Liberty Elm, we found ourselves in Rumford, RI this morning and stopped by the diner. A quick chat with the owners revealed they had hoped to be open this month. Although working through all the necessary steps have delayed things and they are expecting to be open in about a month.

We look forward to this diner being open again and will post further information here as it becomes available.
