Future uncertain for workers after Landmark Diner is razed

Posted: Updated:

Workers at the Landmark Diner in Briarcliff Manor are facing an uncertain future following an intense fire that turned the popular eatery into rubble.

Fire officials say the blaze started in the kitchen and quickly spread through the entire restaurant Thursday morning, just after breakfast service was finishing up.

The building could not be saved after hours of battling the flames. What's left of it has been condemned.

The diner's owner released a statement saying in part, “Thank you to the first responders that came to the scene and valiantly fought the intense fire. We are also thankful for the huge outpouring from the Ossining and Briarcliff Manor communities."

The owner has offered Landmark employees an opportunity to work at one of his other eateries, and also vowed to rebuild the Landmark.
