I recently started a new consulting gig near the post office on 33rd on the west side and have been looking for good places to grab a quick lunch. Lately I've been getting deliveries from the Cheyenne Diner on the corner of 33rd and 9th (212 465 9750, free delivery) and I have been very pleasantly surprised from what the outside looks like a greasy spoon pre-fab diner hash-slinging kinda place. Inside there are a lot of celebrity pictures adorning the walls, I guess the place has a draw.
So far, I have had several of their soups (Matzoh ball, really, really good chicken stock with perfectly formed balls with just the right consistency-- Cream of Broccoli, also good but needs salt, Chicken Noodle which was excellent with nice peices of white meat chicken in it, Split Pea like my grandma's) their turkey club sandwich which was made from fresh turkey (in my opinion, if a diner makes this sandwich with any other kind of turkey, RUN, do not walk away!) and crispy bacon with nice lettuce, tomato and perfectly done fries. I also had their chopped steak with gravy and sauteed onions, which was a nice size portion done perfectly medium a little on the rare side. Prices also quite reasonable.
Any other notable diners in the city, or good delivery restaurants in my part of midtown?
