Seated on red leather bar stools, guests at Silver Star Diner sip on fresh-brewed coffee and peruse a menu of comfort cuisine such as half-pound burgers, deli sandwiches, and breakfast skillets. In addition to hearty diner staples, guests can sample a rotating selection of pastries, which are baked on-site daily. Diners can order anything off the menu regardless of the time of day or lunar cycle.
Substitutions and special requests are met with a smile at this diner, even for dishes not listed on the menu. Good luck stumping the chefs, as their regular repertoire already includes everything from shepherd’s pie to mofongo—a Puerto Rican dish made with fried plantains.
Father-and-son duo Peter and Bill Tsibidis pepper Crosstown Diner's broad menu with ingredients hand-picked weekly from farmers' markets, featuring a cheeseburger that the New York Daily News deemed among the city's top three in 2011. Taste buds tingle and occasionally faint in the presence of celebrity burgers ($6.99+) such as the famously fresh open-faced cheeseburger, a build-your-own delectable, or one of the diner's 11 specialty burgers. Chefs salute the restaurant's Greek heritage in chicken athenian, a breast stuffed with spinach and feta ($15.99), and glasses of wine (a $5.29 value) toast nine specialty pasta dishes tossed in velvety sauces ($9.99–$19.99). Two country eggs team up with Eire's finest bacon or sausage to rout out hunger in the irish breakfast ($8.39), and pancakes as fluffy as clouds stuffed with teddy bears assemble outfits of red velvet batter, bacon bits, and bananas ($8.99) to attract forks.

Stepping into Metro Diner late at night might feel a bit like stepping into a living version of Edward Hopper's Nighthawks. Art deco booths and retro wraparound lights create a timeless atmosphere that belies the eatery's relatively young age and a menu that features modern twists on diner classics.
