We stumbled over this restaurant after a visit to central park. Staff were very attentive. I had a chicken club sandwich with chips and it was the best club sandwich I have ever had. I would recommend this to any of my friends that were planning a visit and if we ever visit New York again, we would definitely make a point of going back.

The Amity (note: The canopy outside reads "The New Amity.") is a good place to stop before or after a visit to the Metropolitan Museum. It's a block from the museum, on Madison Ave. A Swiss cheese omelet for breakfast was hearty and delicious. The pancakes are good, too. It's also good for dessert and coffee after visiting the Met. If it's especially busy, the waiters will let you know not to sit too long. But I've been there when it wasn't so busy, and was allowed to linger over my coffee and talk as long as I wanted. The prices are reasonable, for New York, and the service is mostly friendly; sometimes a little gruff, but not too gruff.

a typical diner menu with some Greek options. the gyro meat in my husband's gyro looked like a prefab slab. My spinach pie was mediocre but overheated or stale so tough to cut. service was poor. I had to ask for the check (it's not Europe or Latin America and a diner is usually quick on the draw) and had to wave the check and money to get our waiter's attention. too many other places to eat in New York to bother with this one.
