Manning the Miss Portland

Bill Nemitz’s column in today’s Press Herald looks at the back story behind the revitalized Miss Portland Diner. Tom Manning, the new owner, grew up in Portland’s East End and currently lives in Connecticut and is the Director of Administration at Newsweek. According to the article, Manning’s plan was to have a quiet opening and give his staff a month before the fanfare of a grand opening next month. Things didn’t quite work out that way and the diner has been quite busy since day one.
