MeMe’s Diner — the Prospect Heights restaurant known as much for its LGBTQ-focused, inclusive approach to hospitality as for its eclectic take on comfort food — is closing following a three-year run in the neighborhood. Owners Libby Willis and Bill Clark made the announcement on MeMe’s Instagram page, writing, “with heavy hearts, like so many other small businesses, we made the tough decision to close our doors for good.” The restaurant will serve its last meal on November 22.

Like scores of other restaurants in the city, MeMe’s Diner temporarily closed in March following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in NYC and the shutdown measures that followed. The restaurant opened for limited weekend takeout meals in May, and gradually added outdoor seating as the city opened up streets and sidewalks for outdoor dining.
