Palms Grill Cafe will close for six days to transition to new operators

The Palms Grill Cafe in downtown Atlanta, Ill., will close from April 30 to May 5 to allow for a transition for the restaurant’s new operators, the Atlanta Public Library Board said in a news release.

The board recently selected J-R Culinary Partners as the restaurant’s new managers. The lease for the previous manager was not renewed, as the board was dissatisfied with the Route 66 restaurant’s hours.

From the news release:

The Grill will reopen on Monday, May 6th. Its new days and hours of operation will be expanded, so you’ll now be able to enjoy its historic atmosphere and great food seven days a week, from 7am until 9pm daily. […]

In addition to maintaining The Grill’s traditional diner menu, including grilled Spam and fried baloney, J-R Culinary Partners will introduce a new set of daily blue plate specials, plus an array of new baked goods, including Ronda’s delicious homemade cinnamon rolls.  The front of The Grill will keep its period 1935 look, while the backroom will feature a circa 1940s supper-club atmosphere, with tablecloths, candles, and an upscale menu of such items as Steaks, Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Grilled Halibut, Welsh Rarebit, and weekend dinner specials including Catfish, Prime Rib, and Oven-Fried Chicken.

    Does this new management team mean that Lumi Bekteshi will no longer be making pies there? I’m not sure if she was considered part of “management” or not.
