Mr Ed's Reopens After Community Outpour

The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin reports that landmark Walla Walla Restaurant, Mr. Ed's, has reopened, a few weeks after ceasing operations due to lower crowds and high food costs.  The restaurant on East Isaacs had at one time been an A &W Root Beer Drive In, but had become independent in the early 70s, after the root beer giant started marketing in local grocery stores.
Now one of Walla Walla's oldest restaurants, the announcement of Mr. Ed's closing was met with expressions of sadness on social media sites.  Co-owner Dan Givens, a Walla Walla High School classmate of mine, says that the reopening was made possible by shortening the hours of operation and reworking the menu.
