Traditional American Diner with hearty breakfasts

We came here for breakfast on a Friday morning after the place we'd been recommended to go had a line round the block. I'm glad! This is a proper home-style American diner with the booths and waitress bringing coffee refills every few minutes. The menu is typical diner fare, and the portions are... read more

Arrived to LES late on a Saturday night after flying in from Vegas. Dropped our bags off at our nearby hotel & headed to Remedy. I had been craving Italian food but we were too late for the restaurant, so 'settled for' this diner. What a stroke of luck! Brooklyn lager on tap went down a treat. I chose one... More

Went for breakfast with a friend. No queue, we were seated right away in a booth. The location is great (I love the LES) and the interior is a classic American diner - very nice! The food and drinks arrive fast, the coffee is bottomless. Be aware that the portions are huge! We had eggs benedict (with lox), scrambled eggs... More

Alone in the am after my son headed to work, I walked about until I spied Remedy. It appeared to be a clean diner offering lots of breakfast choices. I sat at the counter, the staff was attentive and friendly. I had a simple egg, toast and potato breakfast for a VERY reasonable price. The real plus was the consistently... More

Nice friendly service. Great food and very generous portions. Endless coffee refills. Great retro look and great selection of old school R 'n' B, and classic soul on the sound system. The classic Eggs Benedict was the best breakfast I've had in New York

Remedy is one of these places in NY that should be protected like a museum, a place like I would have found 33 years ago when we first lived here, or like what I would like to find in any future visit. Service nice, multilingual by mean of the diversity of the team; food very well cooked and generous; decoration... More

We ate here twice in four days once for brunch and once for dessert and coffee. Very good food and fair prices. The location in the lower east side was convenient

Went here for some dinner with 8 people, no problem seating us all together. I had the western burger which comes with egg and bacon on it. And I ordered some onion rings on the side...large portions!! Couldnt finish my entire burger let alone the onion rings. I did however decide to order pudding (stupid me) unfortunately they had no...

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
