    A little too overpriced for a diner. Food was alright, you won't get to know the price till the check comes.

    Non-pretentious. Thoughtful. Delicious.
  • Adrian P.
    This place is very serious about maximizing their space. Be prepared to be squished in. Pretentious, yes, they write shit on your table. Save the waiter's hand and just order the fucking burger.

    HOLY MOLY. Didn't think the flourless chocolate cake would be worth mentioning about but it surprisingly was the best part of our meal!
  • Good S.
    Most hipster place ever. Slow service but excellent servers. The food is pretty good but expensive. Good beer/liquor/wine selection. Overall I'm glad I went but wouldn't go back.

    The only "diner" part of this place is the physical space it's in. In the best way too. Great food/drinks. Come early during the week to shave off your wait time. It's worth it.

    The dishes are nice, but too expensive for what they serve.. Unless they have their own chickens in the backyard & grow their own vegetables in there. Than I understand. The vibe is a movie scene.

    Good service, rotating menu. In my opinion the burger is not worth $18 but I'd come back

    New York-y and just pretentious enough to be appealing. A small, ever-changing menu of farm to table, seasonal, organic, delicious simple food. They have their own butcher, bake their own bread.

    The specials are the dishes to order at Diner (and yes, the servers still write them down on the table), but you can always get the excellent burger and a serious steak, too. Read more

    Even if there's a long wait for a table, the chances that you can immediately snag bar seats for 2 are pretty high. The cheeseburger is top notch, as are the fries that come with it.

    Don't be fooled by the minimalist menu. The food is delicious and complex. Try the donut holes and the poached eggs. And the bacon.

    Don't expect an extensive menu (there are five options and the menu is verbal) but this is one of NY's greatest diner experiences.

    Bel endroit, belle ambiance, beaux tatouages. Par contre, le fameux Grass Fed Burger sur lequel tout le monde bave est BEAUCOUP trop salé, limite imbouffable.
