The New Saint Clair Restaurant.....gone

Nothing to recommend this place except for its standard diner fare and its familiarity---it's been there forever and it has been my fairly regular weekend sitdown breakfast spot.
Tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 30 is its last day. From what I can gather, the owners are retiring, the space is being renovated and it will reopen as....not clear but maybe a bit more upscale diner. That's the word from a waitstaff person but not necessarily a person in the know. It's a shock, just because of its 'been there forever, will be there forever' sort of status. I hope this is happening by choice of the owners rather than being forced on them be external forces. But regardless, change doesn't have to be good or bad. It just is.
