This was the second time that I ate at this dinner in 3 years. It used to be called the Mark Twain Diner many years ago. I lived in Jackson Heights for 27 years before moving to Palm Springs,Ca 11 years ago. During those years I ate at the Mark Twain Diner at least once a week. For a diner they made excellent egg plant parmegian and shrimp parmegian. The tomatoes sauce was on a par with a good Italian restaurant. I visited NYC and my old neighborhood (Jackson Heights) 3 years ago and discovered that the Mark Twain Diner changed owners, was completely remodeled and had a similar menu to the old Mark Twain.
and was now called JAX Inn Diner. In a nutshell, 3 years ago I ordered the egg plant parmegian and it was just horrible--the tomato sauce was watery, bitter and tasteless. Forward to my 2014 visit to my old neighborhood and NYC. I went back to Jax Inn to give it another try with it's Italian food. Ordered Shrimp Parmegian--again tasteless and horrible. Hugh portion which could have filled up two people. It was very pricy too. Jax was crowded at lunch time and the other customes seem happy with their meals. If you go DO NOT order anything Italian because you will be disappointed
