Plainfield Ave Restaurant in the 1980s... just can't remember the name...

Recommended Posts

Out at the corner of Jupiter and Plainfield, by what is now autosales, there used to be "The Movies at Woodland." Across the street (which was a dead-end road at the time), sat a Witmark (still empty to this day). There's a restaurant there that has been a series of fail attempts. I am trying to remember what that restaurant was, back in the 80s. Was it just a Big Boy? Or was it something else?

Mr Steak owned by Sheldes. Took our first child (daughter) to the one on Alpine when she was just a few weeks old, put her in her car seat in a booth . That was our Friday night outing for some time.

That is awesome. I don't recall Mr. Steak, but it's likely that's what it was. I was very young at the time.

Crazy thing is, just this past week, they tore down the building (it was just a King Crawfish) and put up a coming soon sign... they're building a Car Wash there. Makes sense, with car sales right there, but I miss the Movies at North Kent and North Kent Mall.

Wow... so... soon after you mentioned that, I did some more research Here's what I found.

Mr. Steak existed at 4095 Plainfield Ave. NE. It later became Schelde's (which is what I actually remember it being... after you mentioned that, it reminded me of that). Then it became Finley's. And then Oriental Forest, and a few other places before the building was demolished.

      Out of curiosity:
      1. When did the first Chick-fil-A in Greenville open?  Do I assume correctly that the first was the one at center court in McAlister Square, and that it must have opened sometime in the 1970s?
      2. If Chick-fil-A is coming to Lewis Plaza, does that mean that there's no prospect of one coming downtown again?  Too bad the downtown one had such a bad location and opened and closed right before downtown's rebirth.

      Anybody hear about what is going on in Eastown at 1444 Lake Dr. ? This is what I found on the ECA's website:
      "Stenson and Morton are currently collaborating on another exciting project. Morton owns the brick building at 1444 Lake Drive where he plans to open a restaurant at the front and a music museum at the back. This building is also being extensively renovated according to green-building practices using eco-friendly materials. Plans include removing the old concrete floor and replacing it with solar-powered radiant heating tubes in a brand-new concrete floor, and a rooftop garden and solar lighting tubes."
