Blue-plate buzz: For weeks and weeks, readers have inquired about the unexpected closure Mel’s Blueplate Diner, 910 38th St. in Galveston. The diner left few crumbs to follow. But there’s finally news.

The restaurant remains closed, but starting Monday, fans will be able to find popular Mel’s menu items at Seafood Depot Express, inside the Stewart Super Market and Valero gas station, 7428 Stewart Road in Galveston.
