Following the recent announcement that Red Mug Diner (Facebook Website) had halved its footprint and launched a new menu, the Downtown diner is now closed.

Co-owner, Romi Mawardi, told Bungalower that they are still moving forward with the plan for a poke restaurant but that they would entertain moving the concept somewhere else if someone wanted to operate out of the entire space.

“[A] New concept which focuses on liquor will be placed there. We also would rent it out to a chain brand. If they came along.”
