Hampton Street Diner opened on 3 December 2017 in the former location of Nathan's. By the time I got around to the Nathan's closing, most of the Hampton Street Diner upfit was already done, so I am repeating those pictures here.

The State had this story about the (then upcoming) opening of the new restaurant.

Although it looked like a good place to try a burger, I never did make it by for lunch, and the last time I drove by, there was signage to the effect of either new management or new ownership, so apparently there was a major change at some point.

I do like the parting sentiment that while not everything works out, life goes on.

  1. I ate there once about 3 months ago and found the staff to be friendly, the environment clean and bright, and the food good. Wish them the best in their next adventure.

  2. I went down an interesting rabbit hole for this location. Apparently the owner started a Gofundme about 8 months ago to raise money to purchase the building, stating that the time frame to raise enough money had been changed from September 2019 to February 2018. So I guess there were some financial issues. It's tough opening and maintaining a restaurant.

  3. I had eaten there many, many times when it was Nathans. It was exactly what you need in a diner.
    When it changed to Hampton St., I was detoured away from the habit while waiting for the opening. And then I forgot about it.
    I suspect lots of other people did, too.
    Shame, because I came by several times after hours (of course), but remembered to check status. Hampton St. looked quite nice.

  4. is this the same location as a place called o'heighlies (spelling is probably off)? it was a family-owned place, 2 bothers, a sister and a mom. good food, and they'd insist we take some to go.

  5. Yes Marc, I remember that place, I think that's what it was called. I can remember eating there in the late 80's or early 90's.
