One for the Princetonians: Lahiere's is closing 


Here's a bit of abrupt news that will rock Princetonians, town and gown alike, of all generations:

The 91-year-old Lahiere’s restaurant, Princeton’s first world-class eatery and host to dignitaries from King Hussein of Jordan to Bob Hope, will close its doors forever on Saturday, November 13.

A lot of people who wear tweed jackets six months out of the year will be sorrowfully disappointed by this news. Indeed, I am sorry that I will not be in town Saturday for the Last Supper, having been invited for dinner by a classmate who scored a coveted table. That relatively minor regret will, however, be salved if that institution's rare Princeton liquor license passes to an innovative chef who will raise the local restaurant game.

I saw a report that this was happening in a Yelp review last month, oddly enough, and except that I will miss Chris the bartender I do hope new owners might spruce the place up.

Not to worry. You can always get a sandwich and a coke at 7-11, or whatever convenience store is nearest you.

Wawa is the 7-11 of Princeton (and New Jersey/Pennsylvania/Delaware), but the place you are thinking of is Hoagie Haven.

Heaven forfend! Where will mean old folks in America's Meanest Town (tm) congregate now!
