    Lots to select from on the menu which is nice, especially for a group. The feta spinach tomato omelet was just ok. Needed lots of salt and ketchup to give it any flavor. :/

    This used to be such a great neighborhood joint. No mas. Food & service have declined over the years. Bummer.

    Stick with the basics. Don't order anything with rice (it's overcooked). Prices are way high for the food. But that's a Manhattan diner for you.

    try the steak salad MR... it's pretty damn good... don't worry about too much dressing bc the juicy steak will dress it enough

    Honestly- it's my favorite restaurant in NYC. They know my name, they remember my favorite Bfast... I've lived in Chelsea for 10 years and couldn't imagine my life here w/o The Dish. It's my kitchen.

    My favorite place to eat! It's like the gay Cheers. The atomosphere is so inviting and the home cooking is just like Mom's (if she could cook, I mean). - Mike Ruiz, The A-List: New York

    blackened chicken pasta w/ penne al freddo and sun dried tomatoes (not on the menu, but you can create it) is awesome! Don't be overwhelmed by the 'dictionary' of a menu.
