Time Out NY Please note: this business is now closed; keeps record of many old and closed venues. So much for the greasy spoon. This restaurant, decorated like a vintage diner, is serving small plates instead of blue-plate specials, mesclun salads in place of iceberg and microbrewed beers. A formica lunch counter lined with swivel stools and vintage fixtures was built in a warehouse, not actually refurbished from a has-been diner. The 24/7 menu from chef Eric Miller includes hearty grub like a barbecued beef-brisket sandwich with "Bad Fer Ya" sauce and mac and cheese with Vermont cheddar. Flapjacks, organic three-egg omelettes, homemade milkshakes and double-chocolate praline ice-cream cake are guaranteed to please.
