Abstract

Article on the Miss Portland Diner, which recently closed its Marginal Way location. The Portland City Council voted unanimously in March to accept the diner as a gift from owner Randall Chasse, and the city is accepting proposals for possible uses for the landmark eatery. One idea works the diner into the plan for the commuter train platform the city hopes to build in Bayside, just a few blocks up on Marginal Way. Another idea would relocate the diner off Fore Street, making it part of the tourist draw near the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad. Fred Butts, whose father used to own the diner, recalls celebrities like Babe Ruth and John Ford dining there.
