A good quality diner with a very wide choice of food, good service and reasonable prices. It's open 24 hours so take your pick when you visit.

Had a superb pre-basketball meal. Great, friendly service and superb quality and quantity of food. I had a classic club sandwich and my son had a fantastic burger. Well worth a visit.

Busy, long wait, medicre food, pricey. Not terrible, just not worth it. If staying at the New Yorker and looking to grab breakfast on your way out in the morning (as was our situation), just keep walking to a nearby deli.

We knew about this place via TA and it wasn't too far from our hotel in New York, so decided we would try it. We got seated very quickly as it wasn't too busy, and service was generally fairly quick. I opted for a Oreo milkshake and honey BBQ chicken sandwich which was really tasty, the sandwich also came with... More

Excellent diner with a good variety of menu - plenty of room and staff couldn't do enough for you. We ate here twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner - a typical american diner - highly recommended

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
