Lots of Bayshore area residents were heartbroken to find out last week that the legendary Red Oak Diner was closing.

There's a sliver of good news this week, as they've found a place to reopen!

The Asbury Park Press reports the owners plan to open the new Red Oak Diner in the Airport Plaza on Rt. 36 in Hazlet by next week. It will take over the spot last occupied by Kazia's Asian Grab 'n Go.

It may seem odd to house a diner in a strip mall (especially one with a Perkins in it...), but when it comes to Jersey diners, it's really all about the experience, right?

The Red Oak Diner closed it's Rt. 35 location last Sunday, and will be replaced by German grocery store Lidl.

Best of luck in the new place!
