Note: In an earlier version of this story we called Tyger’s Glen Park’s “beloved greasy spoon.” That was meant as an endearment and is a phrase that, for the author, had only positive connotations. Clearly, this is not the case for everyone and we apologize for having caused offense. Having happily eaten at Tyger’s for more than 20 years, the author was a big fan and is heartbroken the restaurant has closed.
After more than 30 years in Glen Park, Tyger’s restaurant has closed.
The neighborhood’s beloved breakfast and lunch spot shut its doors and locked it gate for good on March 31, 2021.
It had shut down in the beginning of the pandemic but re-opening for take-out and, in February, for outdoor dining.
The Glen Park News is working to learn more about why Tyger’s closed and what is likely to replace it.
