I just moved to the area (89th and Lex) and am in search of a good neighborhood diner. I've done a search and seem to have identified some clear favorites (Mansion, Viand) but thought I'd start a specific post on the subject to make sure I was exhaustive.
In my early exploration I've tried Highlands (on 3rd and 85th I think) and also Midnight Express (around 2nd and 89th). Both were fine, but not particularly memorable. I walked by the Jackson Hole on Madison yesterday and thought I might give that a try next. Any other suggestions? I would love to hear your votes on the best!
