Back in Business

When I first moved to the Fairmount, I loved going to the Art Museum Restaurant on the corner of 24th and Fairmount for breakfast. They had a spinach and feta omelet that was to die for, and had the perfect greasy diner food that every neighborhood in Philadelphia needs. Then, I don’t remember the exact story, but the owner of the restaurant was embroiled in a scandal, and the restaurant has been closed for the litle while. In recent months when going past the site of one of my favorite former haunts, I couldn’t tell if the restaurant was open or if work was going on inside. But, it seems it is indeed open, now as Demetri’s Restaurant and Pizzeria. I received a menu from Demetri’s under my door and was going to throw it away, as I usually do with such things, but gave it a closer look once I saw the address. I have examined the menu, and my beloved omelet is still there. I’m not sure if the restaurant has opened under new management, but I will have to make a visit soon. And let you know my thoughts on the omelet.

    omg–it was my friend’s old landlord that owned that restaurant & who was the victim in the scandal. he’s an elderly guy whose wife hired a hit man to take him out–there was big sting & i think the wife/gunner got caught. i never really ate there before but a friend of mine ordered pizza one time it was FROZEN.

    Um, you might want to wait on that omelet until the spinach scandal is past…
