Coney Island Restaurant owner: historic griddle may not be repairable

Published: Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 07:55 PM.

Some previous repairs to the griddle, which Phillip Edge bought used more than four decades ago in Mobile, weren't carefully done, and may have made the equipment "unfixable," Nester has said.

Just in case Atkinson hasn't any luck either, Phillips is asking the restaurant's fans for their suggestions.

"Everybody wants me to do something with it to preserve it," she said. "Some say hang it on the wall or engrave it."

Other suggestions include donating it to the Baker Block Museum's collection of regional artifacts, or cutting a piece the size of a Main Street pavement brick and imbedding it outside the restaurant, Phillips said.

Replacing the griddle is out of the question, she said. Vulkan-Hart stopped making cast iron griddles decades ago.
