Former Fairfield Diner and Vegetarian Enclave - Fairfield, CT

On this date in 2005 the Fairfield Diner and Vegetarian Enclave closed. The Anthis family had operated this diner since 1993. Prompting closure of the diner is the expansion plan of the car dealership next door. As seen in the picture taken about a year ago, some of the environmental style exterior has fallen off.

This diner was formerly known as the Eldorado Diner. According to Mike Engle, the diner was manufactured by Kullman in 1990. We should note that Mike collaborated with Mario Monti on the book entitled, "Diners Of New York."

The Anthis family owns another diner, the Shoreline Diner & Vegetarian Enclave located in Guilford. We last visited that DeRaffele diner about a month ago.
