Bowery Diner Adds New Neons

Posted on: August 10th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

The Bowery Diner is ever so close to opening shop at 241 Bowery.  We’ve been watching closely as work progresses inside the establishment, from the addition of ground-level glass frontage to the new globe light fixtures.  And yesterday, the arrival of the official marquee signage.

Neon enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the new Bowery Diner signage boasts a slightly modified take on the classic “American Diner” feel.  Not only that, this new marquee addition doubles as namesake for the Sunshine Hotel, and replaces the old back-lit housing which was removed not long ago.

Last night, a small crane vehicle sat curbside with its payload on the flatbed.  By sunset, the crew had already bolted the box to the facade.  It’s plugged in, but not yet lit.

There’s also headway in cyberspace for Mathieu Palombino (Motorino) and company.  Indeed, their website is up and running, boasting a comical splash page of a subway car being dumped at sea (get it?).  As advertised, the Bowery Diner is seeking employees for both Front of House and Back of House operations.
