You’ll find fusion comfort foods—not all-day breakfast—at this “diner,” a stylish, exuberantly kitschy Hell’s Kitchen favorite. Though tender rings of fried calamari get a North African kick with harissa mayo, juicy fried chicken with smashed potatoes is straight-up American. If you’re feeling like Asian, sample the Thai red curry with coconut milk, fiery chilies and Chinese broccoli. There’s nothing funky about the desserts—they’re just decadent, down-home classics, like a cinnamon-rich apple crumb pie.
