Clifton’s Cafeteria Set to Reopen

Hosted by

An indoor redwood forest. Animatronic wildlife. More Jello than you could possibly imagine, and space for 600 diners. Clifton’s downtown cafeteria opened near the corner of Broadway and 7th street in 1935. It was family owned until 2010, when nightlife impresario Andrew Meieran bought the property. He closed Clifton’s in 2012 to revamp and remodel the interior. And the brand new Clifton’s is set to open on September 17.
