The New Hope Eagle Diner location at 6522 Route 202 has been taken over by a Hillsborough restaurateur, and will be renamed the “New Hope Star Diner” in about a month.
New owner John Koc, 37, has been running the Hillsborough Star Diner on Route 206 in New Jersey for 15 years, and says he plans to overhaul the New Hope restaurant’s menu, and freshen up its interior.
Koc says he also intends to prepare all food on-site, shunning frozen ingredients, and keeping it all fresh through daily fish deliveries, expanded daily specials, better breakfast offerings, homemade soups, and an epic baked-on-premise cheese cake.
The New Hope Eagle Diner has for several years provided an affordable dining alternative in an area known for fine cuisine. Reviews on Yelp and Google are mediocre at best, with the Hillsborough Star generally faring slightly better. Fingers crossed.
