The Miss Albany Diner, or MAD for short, is closing its doors. Since the death of her husband Cliff, Jane Brown has been trying to sell the business. Some entrepreneurs who own a nearby club have scooped up the building, but not the business, name, or recipes. I really loved this place and I'm sad that it's closing on February 10th. Any time I was in my hometown, I would meet friends there and enjoy some MAD Irish Toast (Texas French toast filled with pecan cream cheese, drenched in Irish whiskey butterscotch sauce) or MAD Eggs (curried eggs served over butterflied English muffins).

It was an institution and will be sorely missed.
