24-hour diners are always a great late-night option- after the party, a bar, or a late-night show and the theater. Now, the 24-hour diner format is coming to the neighborhood run by the owners of The Hammered Lamb. The Hammered Lamb is owned by Jason Lambert and his husband Joe Colón-Acevedo. Lambert and Colón-Acevedo are going to be opening a 24-hour diner which will be right next door to The Hammered Lamb bar. The diner will be named “Jack ‘n’ Honey’s Diner” named after Lambert’s grandparents who were diner owners.
The 2,000 square-foot space that Jack and Honey’s Diner will occupy next to The Hammered Lamb formerly housed Tommy Bahama, which sold tropical-themed apparel. Jack ‘n’ Honey will have a menu of classics and comfort foods: breakfast all day, and comfort foods such as burgers and milkshakes. Think of a retro city diner, New York style.
Lambert also worked as the general manager of The Globe back in the late nineties, which operated on a 24-hour diner concept.

Jack ‘n’ Honey is currently in the design and development phase with work being done by MILES Architecture Group (Website) and Lambert expects to go into the permitting process in January 2019 with a hopeful opening in the summer.
