Best Diner


Can you visualize bad boy Mickey Rourke and his horny buddies holding court at 3 a.m. at the Grill? He looks like the kind of guy who makes meat a priority and so does the Grill. They make no apologies for serving meat (Boar's Head premium) and even brag that the grill is part of a car that killed Bambi. Ouch. What we know and love is that soups, sauces and desserts are made from scratch and everything is fresh. Who else serves retro tater tots just waiting to be smothered in Heinz ketchup? The menu blabs on about the rules, but just behave yourself and don't drink the condiments, and you'll do just fine.
