MICHELIN Guide 2017
85 Broadway, New York 11211
From $25 to $49


Williamsburg's restored 1920s-era diner is a modern day catalyst that lures locals and visitors into its dingy quarters. Settle atop swivel stools lining a counter or wood-slat booths for a feast of unfussy American food. In lieu of a menu, friendly servers notate the kitchen's carte and daily specials onto paper-topped tables, all the while explaining each item in detail. The signature grass-fed burger is thoroughly suitable for the setting, but it's the less expected items that really wow. Take for example the chicken soup special floating with tender lima beans and garnished with parsley for restorative flavor and perfect texture. Desserts are equally impressive as evidenced in coconut panna cotta with fragrant fennel seed and blood orange coulis.
