A new diner should be opening to fill the hole left in downtown Greenville by the migration of Marcus P’s by the end of the month.

Kirk Burelle, owner of Gary’s Harvest Restaurant in Wilton, is in the process of renovating the former Marcus P’s Diner location at 50 Main Street Greenville, where he plans to open his second Gary’s location.

“The one in Wilton will definitely still be staying open,” said Burelle, who opened the Wilton location on Main Street in November of 2016, about a year after the closing of the Gary’s Harvest Restaurant on Route 101, which was owned by Burelle’s parents, Gary and Linda Burelle. The restaurant had been a staple in the community for more than 35 years.

Burelle said the Greenville restaurant will be modeled after his Wilton location, with a similar menu with diner fare, pizza and take-out. The location will likely be open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Wednesday and for all three meals the rest of the week.

Burelle said he’s likely to spend the first few months heading the new location, so that he can get to know his new customer base and making sure things are running smoothly, but said he’d likely transition back to his Wilton restaurant once things are established in Greenville.

“I just love downtown Wilton,” he said.

Burelle is currently doing renovations at the 50 Main Street location, including putting in new windows and floors and painting. He does not have a firm opening date, but will open as soon as renovations are finished, which he expects to be within the month.
