Hours: Lunch, Dinner, & Late Night. Kitchen open until 1 a.m.
With a long marble-topped bar, fresh seafoam green paint, and green-and-black plaid seats on the booths, this retro-styled King Street diner captures the feel of the pre-Hippie ’60s. The menu looks backward too, with classic, no-frills fare ranging from tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches to big plates of fish and chips and chicken and waffles. The double track burger has two thin-pressed patties topped with ketchup, mustard, and pickles on a soft Cuban bun. The breakfast menu’s steak and eggs, huevos rancheros, and French toast are served all day, offering something substantial to line your stomach even late at night. Brent Sweatman heads the bar, and his cocktails recreate old classics like the Sazerac and the Corpse Reviver, while his house-made ginger beer tops off the bar’s signature Moscow Mules served in snazzy copper mugs. It all comes together to create a rare bit of nostalgia that doesn’t feel dated at all. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
