Drive-in movies. Car hops. Rock 'n' roll. Though human nature compels us to view the past in varying shades of gold, the 1950s almost transcends nostalgia. For those who were there, the smallest of triggers can set off waves of fond memories: a ringing bell leads the mind’s eye back to the polished counter of a soda fountain, and an oldies radio station evokes weekends spent passing quarters through the jukebox slot.
On September 11, 2001, in the midst of tragedy and after 19 years as a flight attendant, Brenda Stranberg decided that she was tired of playing back memories of America’s greatest decade in her head. Looking around her at a cultural landscape that her childhood self would hardly recognize, she teamed up with old friend Naif Makol Jr. and founded Skooter’s Restaurant, an old-fashioned diner and coffee shop inspired by the simple pleasures of life more than half a century ago. The Springfield spot boasts a classic coffee shop atmosphere with a full food menu, and the Connecticut diner’s open kitchen has proven wildly popular among the various generations that frequent the sit-down counter to sample thick milk shakes, loaded hot dogs, and burgers topped with fried onions. Between bites at the diner, guests can toss coins into the antique jukebox or admonish the soda jerks for callously dousing their friends with fountain drinks.
I had the fish and chips and really enjoyed it. The cook was pleasant and the food was good for the setting.Reviewer, Google+ Local
