Old school that has it all: quintessential Greek-diner kitsch, huge dining rooms in need of new paint, upside-down coffee-cups, a working class clientele, and an exhaustive menu that rivals a short-story anthology. You can't go wrong with breakfast; you can't go wrong with the gyro sandwich and the home-made tzatziki sauce; and if you can't find a worthy dessert among the many offerings, you're not hungry enough. This is a popular place to wind down after a night out at the clubs. Cool feature: this was late, legendary bassist Jaco Pastorious's favorite place to grab a bite. Another cool feature: sometimes your drink shakes when the trains go by.
