ELMIRA HEIGHTS - [WENY] Manos Diner on College Avenue celebrated it's comeback bright and early Monday morning. Manos Diner closed several years ago, and the building was leased out and operated under the name "Blue Collar Diner", while the 24/7 Manos Diner in Ithaca remained open.
Bill Manos, the owner of Manos Diner said, "We came back, I cant say enough. I think it is unbelievable on all of the people that have reaccepted us so far, and everybody wanted us to come back, not that it had much to do with it. I felt it needed another shot."
The Greek style diner underwent several months of renovations before the reopening.
