There have been several owners of that specific Spic and Span tenderloin batter recipe over the years. It would be nice if any new owner carried on with it. The second best in the nation moniker came from me in my old now defunct blog. It was deservedly so from the ambience of the whole package, from the small special diner, to the interesting "magical" owner and family business to the unique tenderloin. You just enjoyed being there.
