Starlite Diner appears to have closed a year after it opened in Belvedere Square.
Starlite opened in September 2016. The restaurant was locked and the lights were off on Monday afternoon, and Google lists it as permanently closed. No one answered the phone at Starlite on Monday.
The diner was the latest in a series of concepts to file through the space at 510 E. Belvedere Ave. It followed restaurants such as Shoo-Fly Diner, Crush, Demi and Taste. The longtime restaurant space was once a Hess shoe store.
Several restaurants have come and gone at this Belvedere Square landmark that was a popular shoe store in the 1950s. Some people are even suggesting that the building is jinxed. New owner Leonard Clarke is working to change that perception with Starlight Diner.
