Posted July 19, 2019 12:12:20The food service at the popular New York City restaurant restaurant Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (Diner’s) was offline on Tuesday, according to a statement posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
The restaurant was closed from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday because of a “security incident,” and a “suspect has been arrested in connection with the incident,” according to the statement.
The statement also said the restaurant was temporarily closed for a maintenance worker to install a “toxic-litter removal system” in the dining rooms.
Diners’ social media posts said the social media feed was temporarily suspended on Tuesday as a precaution and that the restaurant will reopen Wednesday, but that it is “not fully operational.”
The restaurant’s Instagram account has been taken down as well.
Diner owners Mark and Stephanie Johnson told The New York Times on Monday that they believe a “significant number of servers” have been working in the restaurant for about six months.
The restaurant has about 2,000 servers.
The New York Post reported that a group of servers who work in the Diners’ dining room have been on the front lines of the ongoing fight over the new rules, including a dispute over who gets to serve food.
