Side Dishes: KJ's Diner closes; Tom Bivins heads to New England Food Show

Don’t look for a diner in downtown St. Albans. The last one, KJ’s Diner at 51 South Main Street, closed last Sunday. “It wasn’t doing the business I needed it to,” explains owner Tom Quoijes. His other restaurant, the St. Albans Diner on Swanton Road, continues to serve French toast, wraps and fried seafood dinners.

Industry types headed to the New England Food Show may want to check out a familiar face. The Vermont Chamber of Commerce’s 2011 Chef of the Year, Tom Bivins of Crop Bistro, will cook at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center on March 13, representing the Green Mountains as one of New England’s Greatest Chefs.

“We’re very excited to have Tom, and we’ve heard great things about him,” says show director Bob Callahan. “We think he’ll be a great draw for our event.”

How do you define "local" food?

  • It must be grown at a farm in my town.
  • I'd like it to come from within an hour's drive.
  • If it's grown in-state, that's fine.
  • If it's from New England, that counts!
  • I'll go with the USDA definition: if it's produced within 400 miles of my house, it's local.
