Found this place in NY among the skyscrapers. Great service, good food at areasonable price. It was always busy so get there early but the queue seemed to go down quietly. I recommend the New Yorker breakfast.

A must-go, as simple as that. The faithful reproduction of a diner close to Central Park represents a venue difficult to avoid if one would look for a kind of NYC. When I am in town I come very frequently mostly because of the place...More

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
