Dimitri’s, a fixture on 104 S. Washington Avenue in Lansing for over 30 years, is closing next week. And it’s my fault. I work downtown, but I rarely stopped in for a meal, and now look what’s happening? Okay, it’s not all my fault – it’s your fault too.
To remedy this situation, though admittedly too late to do any good, I visited Dmitri’s for lunch this afternoon. Arriving just before 11:30, I was the first one there, but by the time I left just before noon, there was a line out the door.
I didn’t feel creative today, so I went with my usual Dmitri’s dish, the olive burger. It was a solid burger, the sauce being a little runny but otherwise was excellent. The platter came with fries and a Coke for under $6, and they are as fast as they have always been.
I’ll pay them one more visit next week, probably the last day they are open. One less place to eat downtown…
