This wonderful classic Art Deco diner was closed for some years but it is open again, looking even smarter than before.
You have the typical diner padded booths but the tiles floors and glossy chrome is far away from the look of a normal diner.
The Art Deco space has been meticulously restored with a palette of stylized black, white and many shades of grey.
Try the juice-dripping burger with melty orange cheddar and sugar-dusted doughnut holes. The orzo mac and cheese is also good, so is the pancakes, the banana split and the salted caramel shakes.

THE EVELYN HOTEL
The name switch from composer George Gershwin to a sexy chorus girl from the early 1900s—Evelyn Nesbit—is meant to reflect the evolution of the hip neighbourhood in which the hotel is located.
The Evelyn (formerly The Gershwin) is a New York hotel offering vibrant interiors, original artwork and a great location in the heart of the ultra-trendy Flatiron District. Five blocks south of the Empire State Building and 15 blocks south of Times Square.
According to the hotel’s website, the hotel has been “refreshed and restored to preserve the building’s charm without sacrificing the convenience of modern amenities. Designer Sylvia Sofio has taken special care to incorporate the building’s extensive artistic and musical history into each room’s decor. In a playful intermingling of past and present, guests will have a gramophone that plays music streamed from their mobile phone and an intriguing chandelier resembling a trombone that adorns each room. Even the mini-bar offers a musical element as snacks and drinks are housed inside of a vintage record cabinet while the bathrooms have a melodic character as a subtle border of sheet music and lyrics tie the theme together.”
In addition to musical components in every room, the hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, concierge service, luggage storage, and valet parking. The Evelyn also provides complimentary walking tours every Saturday at 9:30 a.m. to guests staying in their boutique accommodations near Madison Square Park. Guests of The Evelyn may also take tours at other Triumph Hotels in Manhattan, including Hotel Chandler and Hotel Belleclaire.
Price: fr. $109 double room per room/night
Area: Midtown Flatiron, NoMad area, close to Empire State Building
