This weekend my family was out with my inlaws. My MIL is entering into the Alzheimer stage of her life..We went to The utopia Diner near 72nd street. I was struck by how nice the waiters were to My MIL who was having difficulty dealing with the menu and with the whole restaurant experience. I then realized that the diner is right near a senior facility and they deal with little old ladies all the time.. But then again, these men are not social workers.. but waiters.. but they could not have been kinder or more understanding, or helpful or respectful to my mother in law.
As for the food? Decent Greek diner food. I know this is not the usual thing chowhounds worry about in selecting a restaurant.. but on Sunday.. this really mattered to us.
