Breakfast for dinner? Lunch for breakfast? When an out-of-towner requests an authentic diner experience, you brave the crowds and take them to the Deluxe. The Watertown stalwart is an homage to classic diner fare: hash and eggs, Rhode Island johnnycakes, grilled Reubens and chili-cheese dogs—everything available all day, every day. Dinner is a slightly more upscale affair, with starters like crab cakes and entrees like chicken piccata; if you want down-home dining, stick to blue plate specials like the meatloaf dinner. The neon-lit exterior and classic interior (lunch counter, no-frills booths) speak to the space’s history: The Deluxe has been around since the 1940s, and a full restoration a few years ago brought the interior back to its original lunch counter glory.
