With mixed emotions, we’ve closed Dianne’s on Devine after 24 years, 18 of which have been on Devine Street. I’ve loved serving you for special occasions, business meetings or just a nice evening out over the years. You all are like family to us. To say we couldn’t have done it all these years without you is an understatement. Thanks to you and our extremely dedicated staff, Dianne’s on Devine has earned several accolades and awards over the years, including “Best Fine Dining,” “Best Restaurant,” and “Best Overall Dining Experience.”
There’s no doubt that I’ll miss serving you each night, but I’m very excited about the opportunity to continue my 40-year restaurant career by focusing on DiPrato’s Delicatessen and DiPrato’s Pimento Cheese. If you’ve had a sandwich at DiPrato’s or tasted our famous pimento cheese, you know why I’m excited about the next chapter! We’re currently working to notify everyone that has a reservation at Dianne’s, and I’m happy that this isn’t a goodbye, because I know I’ll continue to see many of you at DiPrato’s! From the bottom of our hearts, I thank you, Columbia! Cheers to the next chapter for all of us.
