The Park Plaza Diner has made Gothamist’s list of the the Top 10 diners in New York City. The Cadman Plaza eatery joins such NYC icons as Prospect/Crown Heights’ Tom’s Diner, Neptune Diner in Astoria (Homer’s haunt backintheday) and Manhattan’s Market Diner (Poppa Fink’s fave).
Gothamist: Park Plaza is like the diner you’d find in a suburban strip mall—which is pretty much what you want a diner to be like. The Brooklyn Heights establishment is family owned and operated, and just survived a recent fire. They serve up a huge array of food, 24 hours a day, which you can get delivered, but then you’d miss out on the diner experience. They’ve got the classic diner bar chairs where you can order up a cup of coffee and a slice of pie, solo style… but they’ve also got large booths that you and your hangover can disappear right into. If you like your grilled cheese buttered to the perfect level of saturation, and a cheap side of crispy onion rings to go with it, then this is your place. But they’ve also got seven pages of other items, from soups and salads to grilled chicken to breakfast all day long.
