Just when you thought it was over, along comes a diner to restore your faith in this languishing genre. Who knew chichi Palm Beach restaurateur Jo Larkie had meat loaf, pot pie, banana splits, blueberry pancakes, grilled ham-and-cheese sandwiches, and hot apple pie à la mode in her bag of tricks? You'd never guess a crowd of Palm Beach fans had followed her across the bridge and lunch regularly at City Diner, not from the down-home feel of this old Pizza Hut building, its walls full of kitschy diner memorabilia, its honest middle-aged waitresses, and the old milk-shake machine churning out floats and egg creams as if the joint were somewhere in Hackensack, not West Palm Beach. You can't get a bad breakfast, lunch, or dinner here, but don't miss the Reuben sandwich; it's a stunner.
