Useful information


With its white walls and seafoam-green booths, this “diner” may look like the classic American translation, but is in fact a far cry from your tuna-melt standby. Instead, this kitchen ramps up known classics by riffing on tradition. Need proof? Look no further than the kale nachos or meatloaf elevated with a hint of sriracha and morel mushroom gravy. Even waistline watchers won't be able to say no to those hearty chicken pot pie poppers. Roasted cauliflower tossed in tahini with fried chickpeas for crunch and pickled red onions for acidity is another win and goes to show that creating new traditions here is just as vital as jazzing up the old ones.
For salads, sammies and egg-centric items, be sure to visit during the day for their brunch offerings.
