Karen Crowson still remembers the day she moved to Riverhead 31 years ago. With the moving truck still in her driveway, she walked down to the Riverhead Diner & Grill to apply for a job.
It was so busy, they hired her on the spot and put her to work that day.
Three decades later, Crowson is still a waitress at the East Main Street diner and is glad to see that new owners Jim and Sunny Liszanckie of Riverhead have kept the restaurant’s 85-year history in mind as they’ve rebranded it Sunny’s Riverhead Diner & Grill.
“It’s basically the same, but they improved it,” Crowson said.
She said she remembers the winter day when Mr. Liszanckie, sitting at the counter in the diner, suggested buying the restaurant from former owner Liz Strebel, who took over the business from her family in the late 1970s. READ
