Look for the Hillcrest Corvette Diner to close on April 26 and reopen in Liberty Station early summer 2009. Owned by the Cohn Restaurant Group, the new site features a gaming arcade, more seating and lots of parking. Housed in a historic building that was the officers club, the new Corvette Diner & Gamers Garage will also give diners three different themed areas for family dining. For adults who may need a drink beyond a milk shake, there will be a full bar. The restaurant is located at the Barnett Street entrance to Liberty Station, across from the golf course.
