Take 10 - Massachusetts diners
Aficionados might remember this 1950 diner as northern Vermonts Miss Newport. Car mogul Kevin Meehan rescued it from a boneyard and restored it to vintage glory as an amenity to his Imperial auto dealerships along Route 16. With re-chromed stools and a new entry crafted to match the original dining car, the Miss Mendon opened in January with an unusually extensive comfort-food menu. Its already doing a bustling business, which shows that theres no keeping a good diner down. 16 Uxbridge Road, 508-634-3000, www.missmendondiner.com. Breakfast $1.95-$10.95, sandwiches $4.99-$8.99, plates $8.95-$17.99.
