I have copied the article below. April Doner has been working with the City of Bradenton to help promote businesses in the Village of the Arts and wrote this wonderful article about the restaurant:
Lorraine is a welcoming, down to earth host, cook and business owner with a love for youth, creativity, and community. She runs Downs Dining House on 13th St. with a passion for creating a “homestyle” environment where local kids can come and have fun and express themselves creatively. She makes the restaurant iniviting for all. Lorraine is a gifted cook—she says she's not a “chef” but more of a home cook who can make your favorite comfort food. She charges reasonable prices and likes to take time to get to know her customers. When it's not busy and they seem open to it, she enjoys sitting and having a chat with them as they have their meal. She's also sensitive to what people want, so can tell if customers would rather enjoy their meal privately.

Lorraine is especially passionate about youth. Every Friday in season, she hosted evenings where local teens were invited to come eat an affordable meal, spend time with their friends, and showcase their musical talents in open mic style. She'd love to see this continue and have other local musicians come take part. Lorraine is also an RN. She would also like to get word out more within the Village about Downs Dining House's tasty food and affordable prices. She'd be interested in helping throw a block party in the neighborhood or something that would bring neighbors together and build community.
