Clark's Dining Room Closing
Fri, 09/25/09 10:53 AM
From the Columbus Dispatch:
"Clark’s Dining Room, a comfort-food destination in central Ohio for decades, will close later this fall.
" 'It’s not real happy around here right now,' Tom Clark said of plans to shut his family’s 91-year-old restaurant, located at 6811 National Rd. in the Licking County community of Jacksontown.
"The restaurant that Clark’s grandmother Clara Clark started in an old stagecoach stop in 1918 will close for good Nov. 1."
Clark's is known for its fried chicken dinners, and they've been frying the chicken in nothing but cast iron skillets since day one. In all the years I've been driving past the place I never stopped once because I detest fried chicken. Now, however, I'll have to do it. I assume they must have something other than fried chicken for the three or four of us in the world who won't eat the stuff.
