Last year, I visited diners all over New York, from classic dining cars to more modern establishments. There’s something about the unassuming atmosphere, greasy food, and nostalgia that keeps me coming back. I prefer the classic designs, for obvious reasons. There are plenty of Greek-American restaurants that call themselves diners, but there are only a few originals left. Some of my favorites include Mother’s Cupboard in Syracuse, Center Diner in Peekskill, Lloyd’s Diner in Lowville, and of course Red Robin Diner in Johnson City.
