Their description is classic polishing, though I don't blame them. The sad fact is that the Tri Valley diners didn't go often enough to support what was once an iconic cornerstone of the Tri Valley, if not East Bay, dining scene.

It's a terrible loss, and means that another gaping hole has been torn in our area's restaurant industry. The replacement concept sounds merely like a way to prevent food service from disappearing there entirely, so that wine tasters can have some ballast. (The golf area grill is not an attraction.)

I hope there's a way that Wente can preserve some of their classics, at least the pork chop. But I suspect they cannot.
