MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Nothing replaces a good diner. Where else can you tuck into a plate of bacon-wrapped meatloaf at 2:00 A.M.? The Diner is open 24/7 and its frenetic kitchen is always abuzz. Start off with a really good cup of Counter Culture coffee or if you’re feeling more hair of the dog, a Bloody Mary. It's not just standard diner fare here, where breakfast specials like bread pudding-French toast or tofu scramble with house-made salsa lean gourmet. Nursing a hangover? Straight-up comfort food is what they do best. Order the biscuit and gravy, highlighting a flaky house-made biscuit slathered in creamy sauce with sweet Italian sausage-it's a decadent way to start the day. Finally, sip on a cookies-and-cream milkshake, best enjoyed atop a red vinyl stool at the counter.
