Best Diner 2004
It would be hard not to find something tempting on the menu at the retro Eveready: it’s huge and filled with both traditional diner fare (such as burgers and omelets) and more unusual offerings, including Asian and Italian specialties. The stainless steel exterior is not all that’s old-fashioned about the place: some recipes go back several generations, bringing the notion of comfort food to a whole new level.
Best Diner 2005
It’s got the classic ’50s chrome streamlined look and a menu longer than War & Peace (well, almost), which features everything from haute cuisine to comfort food. And you’ll hardly ever find it closed.
