Bye, Buddha

Just got back from Scranton, previewing The Office Convention (story in Friday’s P-N) and found things are happening on Second Street.

Not, however, the first Asian-Mediterranean-Fusion Diner, which apparently ain’t happening.

The glistering Buddha no longer graces the entryway of the hideous Tom Sawyer Diner, and the rumor is the chef walked. Next rumor: it’s going Tex-Mex. Workmen are working, more as it happens.

Across the street …

Spice is open. Talked to waitstaff, who described the new niche as fine dining. Looked at the menu, and … not so much fine, as comfortable.
