'We'll Open Sometime Next Week'

The Monroe Diner is opening soon, but the exact date has not been released.

Several cars were in the Monroe Diner parking lot at 568 Main Street at 4 p.m. on Friday and a sign posted at the entrance says "Coming Soon!" But a staffer inside smiled and politely said it's not open yet.

"We'll open sometime next week," he said, though he would not give out an exact date.

The reason may be that the diner is planning to have a "soft opening" to get staffers into the flow, before a flood of patrons come in to try out the new restaurant.

Townspeople who miss the New Colony Diner are eagerly anticipating the opening of the diner and the staffer said the new business is just as anxious to open its doors.

I miss Tony. He did a great job with the New Colony Diner. And having him as my boss and living directly across the street were very good experiences during my childhood. Tony was fair and hard-working----and he expected the same thing from all of his employees......and his neighbors.

Welcome to Monroe! I am looking forward to eating at the new Monroe Diner. And I love the pretty pendant lights over the counter, saw them on when I was driving past one night recently.

My Mom lives in Newtown and I have been patiently awaiting the opening of the Monroe Diner - which has ties to the CIrcle Diner in Fairfield - a great place to eat!
