The Finer Diner

The original Brooklyn Diner on 57th St. in Manhattan is NOT your typical diner. In fact this place calls itself "the finer diner" and it lives up to its name with table linens, superb service and an excellent bar.
Yesterday we enjoyed this divinely unique eatery once again.
Celebrating American ethnic dishes found all over Brooklyn, the menu features the kind of real food you crave to eat, just like your mother used to make…only better. Every part of Brooklyn is represented by Jewish, Italian, Irish & other ethnic favorites. And every childhood fantasy is fulfilled by the enormous desserts, all baked on the premises every day.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch (weekends 8 till 3) and late night snacks are always available at this cozy spot where we've often seen stars including Tony Bennett, Nathan Lane and Linda Lavin. (We're told that Seinfeld is a frequent guest but we haven't seen him yet.)
Our favorites: the spectacular 15-Bite All Beef Hot Dog; the cheeseburger deluxe, the roast organic turkey "club" with mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce and the hot corned beef special. Sundaes are incredible. The cheesecake is dreamy and the lemon meringue pie is as high as a skyscraper.
BTW: The Brooklyn Diner is also now open at Times Square on 155 W. 43th St. with its own special menu.
Go! Enjoy!
