Look who’s back in the restaurant business

Just like that, Jeanne Shaft is back in the restaurant business.

Earlier this summer, Shaft began the process of selling Livingston’s Diner at 832 N. Webb Road.

Last month, she officially left the restaurant, and a new owner took over.

“I can just say it became apparent pretty fast that it wasn’t going to work for him,” Shaft says.

She says the timing wasn’t right.

Shaft credits her “fantastic crew” for keeping Livingston’s running smoothly during the transition.

“We’re all happy to be back together again.”

How long they’ll be back together is not clear, she says.

“We’ll just have to … play this out and see how it goes.”
