This spin-off of midtown warhorse P.J. Clarke's serves classic American diner fare. Outfitted with polished concrete floors and white enamel chairs, the restaurant serves five types of burgers with toppings such as green-chili cheese or blue cheese with bacon, while hot dogs come slathered with condiments like harissa hot sauce and apple chutney. Satisfy a sugar craving with a vanilla milk shake or a scoop of ice cream (salted caramel, wild strawberry) served in a vintage Dixie cup.
