West End Silver Diner Opens Next Week but Harris Teeter Won’t Open Until Next Year

Restaurant chain Silver Diner is planning to open its West End location (4630 King Street) next Wednesday, but it could be a while later before the highly anticipated Harris Teeter in the same building opens.

Staff at Array Apartments in the same building said that an update they received said that the Harris Teeter would not be opening until sometime next year. An earlier press release cited early 2021, but the staff at Array said there’s no specific information yet on when.

Silver Diner will hold a ribbon-cutting on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 11 a.m. After that, the restaurant will be open for full service;  COVID-19 protocols are in place and guests are asked to come wearing masks. The restaurant will feature indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a takeout option in lieu of dine-in. The restaurant’s capacity is limited so diners are asked to call ahead for a reservation.

The restaurant will be open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night dining. The location will open at 7 a.m. and close at midnight Sunday through Thursday and 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“In addition to Silver Diner’s famous farm-to-table, flexitarian menu with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, low calorie and diner favorites, the West Alex location will also have a full bar and a built patio,” the company said in a press release.

A new fitness studio also recently moved to the building, and those worried about driving there should know the city has been resurfacing the infamously craggy stretch of King Street outside.
