Hammered Lamb owners opening 24-hour diner next door


The owners of The Hammered Lamb (Website) will soon be opening a new 24-hour diner concept next to their popular Ivanhoe Village venue at 1235 N. Orange Avenue [GMap].

Jack ‘n’ Honey’s Diner will occupy the space directly next to The Hammered Lamb that formerly housed Tommy Bahama, and is currently being used as office and storage space by Hammered Lamb management.

Jason Lambert, half of the husband-and-husband team behind the Lamb, told Bungalower that he was tempted to open a craft cocktail bar but changed his mind after taking stock of the local scene in #ivanhood.

Lambert worked as the general manager of The Globe back in the late nineties, which opened as a 24-hour diner concept, albeit, arguably far ahead of its time.

The menu will feature diner comfort food items like meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, and homemade milkshakes in a “Big City,” retro New York setting. Seating roughly 50 people at a time.

Jack ‘n’ Honey is currently in the design and development phase with work being done by MILES Architecture Group (Website) and Lambert expects to go into the permitting process in January 2019 with a hopeful opening in the summer.
