WORCESTER — Citing a lack of late-night and early morning patrons, The Boulevard Diner has discontinued its weekend third-shift hours — but the move is likely to be temporary, a staff member said.
"It's because of COVID, but it's temporary," server Danielle Beshai explained. "We don't know, we could open again anytime."
Beshai said the diner at 155 Shrewsbury St. hasn't been as busy during the late night hours and was only staying open to feed the night owls on the weekends since the pandemic
Like many restaurants, The Boulevard had adjusted its hours, first when Gov. Charlie Baker imposed a curfew and later when things began to reopen.
In November, the diner got some attention when parts of the movie "Salvation" were filmed there. The eatery closed for a day to accommodate the filming, which included scenes with actor Ashley Moore.
Before the pandemic, the diner was open 24/7.
The hours now are Monday-Sunday 7a.m.-11 p.m.
