Edie’s Diner in MRD garage sale!

Edie’s diner in Marina Del Rey got closed down to make way for yet more “mixed use” development, and all of the stuff in it is getting sold on the 25th.

This whole mixed use concept is getting pretty old, but in the case of Edie’s there is no love lost by me. The food sucked, and it was the kind of place it took 35 minutes to get a glass of iced tea at. It is no wonder that a business with horrible food and service goes out of business to me. They might have some cool stuff for sale however.

I don’t have a picture of Edie’s sitting around, so this cool picture of my friend Paul’s 1973 RS Porsche will have to suffice. (Just imagine that Edie’s is a little out of frame to the left of this picture!)

  • Ok from what I’ve read about Edie’s closing – it was a complete shock to the new developer of the site. The developer purchased the land and buildings housing Edie’s and Harbor House – but let those restaurants stay rent-free and even gave them monthly subsidies to stay open. He said he planned to make space for them in the new complex he is building there. The owner of Edie’s and Harbor House decided to close both restaurants with no notice to even the staff – which (a) screws over the staff (b) screws over the clients who booked Harbor House for events in the next year, and (c) screwed the developer, who is now going to get fined for not having “continuous operational space” on these properties.

    Not nice.

    Meanwhile – I am a nostalgic fan of Edie’s, but it has been declining in quality for some time. Now…knowing that they were rent free for at least a year AND were getting cash each month to stay open – sounds like someone just got greedy.
