LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Diner classics with a twist. It's the idea behind Louisville's newest restaurant, called Metro Diner.
The restaurant is located at The Jefferson Commons and is the chain's first Kentucky location. It's an eatery that focuses on all the family favorites.
"We make just about everything from scratch," said Bern Rehberg. "We serve breakfast all day. We also have sandwiches. Typical diner fare. But what we call dinner fare with flare...twists on traditional recipes."
Over the weekend, Metro Diner held several pre-opening events to benefit the community. On Saturday, donations went to Trust for Life, whose mission is to inform, educate, and encourage Kentuckians to register as organ and tissue donors to save lives. On Sunday, all donations benefitted the Louisville Metro Police Foundation, whose goal is to enhance the effectiveness of the Louisville Metro Police Department by using private donations to assist officers and their families and provide much-needed equipment and programs.
The diner will open at 7 A.M every day and will stay open until 8 P.M. Sunday through Thursday and until 9 P.M on Fridays and Saturdays.
