Conshohocken diner temporarily closes to sort out food quality issues

    Calling its offerings “comfort with a conscience,” the 401 Diner in Conshohocken is going heavy on the conscience. The recently opened diner has shut down temporarily because, “the kitchen was not able to produce the food at the high level of quality that the owners demand.”

    The announcement, reported by the Philadelphia Business Journal, appeared on the diner’s Facebook page Saturday. Owner Tom Richter plans to restaff and reopen with higher food standards and some menu changes.

    Comments on the Facebook post have been positive thus far, with diners complimenting the food and applauding the owners for attention to quality. Feed the Feed: Does transparency from restaurant owners make you more likely to eat at those establishments?
