Owners Jimmy and Louise Poulimenos have a landmark anniversary Thursday.
Twenty years ago, Louise and Jimmy Poulimenos opened the doors to their diner, Angie's Luncheonette, in a Main Street shop front. Over the years they have survived recessions, downtown renovations, hurricanes, a fire that closed the restaurant for a month in 2012 and served an entire generation of Chatham residents. "It's a very special day for us," Louise said. The diner will hold their regular hours Thursday, and they hope to see their friends, their family and as many residents as will fit inside the diner. "This restaurant is my second home," Jimmy said.

"We're lucky no one was hurt," Louise said, but the fire caused severe damage, especially to the kitchen. From members of the borough's Department of Public Works to customers and old friends, the early part of Friday morning was filled with people waving as they passed the restaurant or stopping in to congratulate the owners on reopening the restaurant. Some stayed for coffee or breakfast, some did not, but most were clearly glad to have the …

The Main Street luncheonette was severely damaged by a fire in February.
After being closed for just over a month, Angie's Luncheonette, a Main Street staple in Chatham, is scheduled to open Friday, according to Louise Poulimenos. The restaurant has been closed for a month after a fire mysteriously started in the back of the restaurant.

Insurance covered about half the cost of the repairs and replacements for the restaurant, and Tony Britt and Lori Ann Medico set up a bank account for people to donate money to help cover the rest of the expenses. "We wanted to start a collection to add to …
