New York City is blessed with many fine diners, and this small diner ranks among the very best. Cleanliness is excellent including the men's room. Fast, efficient, friendly service. Noisy because you really are sitting right next to the kitchen

We met up with some friends and diner food is always a good choice when there's a mixture of people wanting something different. They have good burgers & shakes but this time I ventured out to try the chop steak and it was huge! You...More
