UPDATE: There’s a sign on the front door indicating they are opening on May 28th.
I’m not going to hold my breath on this date as we’ve been reporting on the anticipated Black Bear Diner Simi Valley since May of last year, but Black Bear Diner corporate offices indicates an anticipated grand opening date of May 27th for the new location at 2022 First Street, next to Smashburger, at Los Angeles Avenue.
While it may or may not be the exact date, construction is definitely moving along. And there are multiple bear sightings at the site. And lastly, Simi Valley is listed in the Locations section of the Black Bear Diner section of the site at blackbeardiner.com/locations.
