Owner Brian O'Rourke escorts Sen. Joseph Lieberman to the kitchen of the reborn O'Rourkes Diner. O'Rourke said it's his custom to invite honored guests in through the kitchen. Lieberman frequently visits diners across the state to meet with constituents and have one-on-one conversations. This is his first visit to O'Rourke's since the landmark diner reopened last week after being gutted by fire on August 31, 2006.
