Buffalo’s Larkinville continues to grow

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo’s Larkinville is growing again! This time, a piece of the past will take center stage in the downtown district.

Within the next year a 1930’s-era diner will be finding a new home in Larkinville. Right now the diner is in “diner rehab” in Akron, Ohio where it’s being restored.  It will be located where the parking area is next door to Hydraulic Hearth, bar and restaurant.
The plan is to serve upscale breakfast and lunch 7-days a week. The Larkin Development Group found the diner in the Newark area about three years ago. The goal is to restore it to its authentic glory. The owners say the historic feel of the diner will contribute to the neighborhood feel of Larkinville.

Leslie Zemsky, The Director of Fun with the Larkin Development Group said, “It’s on a smaller scale. It’s not a “Happy Days” type diner but its got a warm feel. I like to say we are in the business of neighborhood building in Larkinville. That makes us different than other development companies. And were so focused on building this neighborhood. It’s just so fantastic having other developers now because we cant do it all.”

The diner will still be able to fit up to 50 people. Zemnsky says they wil plan to keep the diner open during special events like Food Truck Tuesdays.
