The numbers might be news to you, but you're probably not surprised. Times change. And so do big cities. Some traditions, however, are worth preserving -- and that's the mindset that we bring to our big menu at Time to Eat Diner. Basically, we offer the favorites and the diner classics, along with a good number of contemporary dishes. From our point of view, this is more than food; it's culture.
The article (linked above) includes images from photographer Riley Arthur. “In a fast-moving city I think many feel comfort in these decades-old institutions that have stood the test of time,” she says, in reference to diner culture.
We couldn't agree more. One of the best experiences we can have is when people look at our menu and say, "Oh my gosh; that's my favorite!" (often a Monte Cristo sandwich, a BLT, a Reuben, a Caesar salad, spaghetti and meatballs, turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, and other classics).
It's good to be the New York and New Jersey diner in Florida. Especially when the originals up North are dwindling in number. Don't you worry, Folks. We ain't goin' nowhere.
