The biggest diner I've ever seen. Wonderful menu, good prices for mid-town Manhattan; service is friendly but lackadaisical. Definitely a good place to talk since it is huge but relatively quiet.

Enjoyed brunch at this perfect location across from Grand Central after our ride in from Westchester and looking to spend time in the city. Lots of business lunch gatherings but casual, courteous , quaint and excellent food. Good idea to make a reservation.
