Title: Derby on Park - closes one week after Grand Opening

This is a shocker. I had hoped to stop in, after giving it some time to get through the opening shake-down.

Oh wow that's incredibly quick, they JUST finished the remodel!

I'm sad to see this, never even had the chance to check it out.

I ate there once, but only after seeing Marah and Tacqueria Cinco were full.  It was good, but priced pretty high for what it was.  Was hoping for a legit $6 burger and fries because the whole branding was that it was a "traditional diner".

I liked its contrast to the other offerings in the area.

It was simply another bland place.Liked the original....community breakfast table etc. I patronized the latest renditions, but struggled.The best meals always at home.

But I liked to sit at the outside covered bar-the bar table aligned along the wall of the former Newspaper and Magazine store that was adjacent. I sat in the middle of the bar about between where the nice magazines where at the front of the store,and the naughty stuff was towards the back.

Shucks,maybe the place is Haunted.

Who the hell wants a Tuna Melt and a craft cocktail?
