A new Mel’s Diner location is coming to Antioch, and is scheduled to open by the end of the year. It will be in the former location of the short-lived Hurricane Grill & Wings, which was Uno Chicago Grill on Lone Tree Way in the Williamson Ranch Plaza, near Staples and Walmart.

The closest Mel’s Diner location is at the Streets of Brentwood. The new restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The owners are not sure, yet if it will be open 24 hours.

Mel’s has a long history in California, with the first opened in San Francisco in 1947 by Mel Weiss and Harold Dobbs. That location was featured in the movie American Graffiti. For more information about Mel’s including their menu, visit www.originalmelsdiner.com.

A new restaurant is now open in Antioch’s historic, downtown Rivertown, and is owned by two partners with over 60 years of experience in restaurants, cooking and catering. Plates, owned by Dawn Bass and Hamid “Tony” Loinab will offer what they are labeling as eclectic cuisine.

“We offer a whole dining experience,” said Dawn, the former executive chef at Trilogy in Brentwood, chef at the Discovery Bay Yacht Club and owner of Pasta Cucina in Brentwood. “You can sit down on the couches, put your feet on the coffee table, relax and enjoy.”

They will offer prime rib, cioppino and sopas (pronounced soupish) on Fridays, a Sunday champagne brunch served buffet style from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., crawdads from Isleton and a variety of wines.

“We’re trying to get as many local items, as possible, including wines,” she shared. “We’re also making some crafty cocktails, with faux liquors, which have a lower alcohol content.”

The menu will include various burgers and five different fresh salads, and 10 different sandwiches including a Vietnamese sandwich. Plus, they will serve kabobs for dinner and in a wrap for lunch.

“We have really nice burgers,” Dawn stated. “One called the Speakeasy. Plus the Big Daddy Burger which has blue cheese, sautéed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and arugula.”

Tony, who has 30 years in the restaurant business, including Black Angus, Red Robin and Hungry Hunter, and owning New York New York Pizza in the county.

They plan to have jazz and dinner music for diners to enjoy. Dinner will be served at 4:00 p.m.

Located at 420 West Second Street, the restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.

Stop by and see Dawn and Tony, and try out some of their eclectic cuisine, today.

“Just ask for the good looking guy,” Tony added with a laugh.

Look for their grand opening some time in August.
