Something Classic comes to Dilworth

Something Classic will be closing its longtime flagship location, at The Villa on Providence Road, as it moves into the former Dikadee's Deli at 1419 East Blvd. “We look forward to coming home to Dilworth," says Jill Marcus of Something Classic; she and co-owner Karen Teed began the 20-year-old catering-etc. business out of their home on Lexington Avenue. "We can’t wait to open the outdoor patio under that great oak tree.” Coffee and croissants, wine and tasting plates and live jazz are planned, along with sandwiches, salads, soups and more, plus a "Cupcake Corner," take-home entrees for kids called "Bug Bites" and gourmet TV dinners. www.somethingclassic.com

So excited to see Dikadee's closing with a new opportunity moving in! Gave Dikadee's 2 chances, they had the worst service I've ever had coupled with mediocre-at-best food both times. I guess that equation equals = GOODBYE!
I figured the ONLY reason they were around this long is because of the location and it's an easy place to "be seen".

Dikadee's will be re-opening in a few months in the former Starbucks space in the Anderson's Restaurant on Elizabeth Ave right across from Presbyterian Hospital. It will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner too!

I gave it 4 chances, the same manager was consistently rude, 4 times, mediocre food, so not surprised at all it's gone. Doubt they'll do better elsewhere. Welcome Something Classic!
