A 24 hour Diner nicely decorated and always clean. Everything is freshly made to order on premises. Three different soups are prepared daily. We serve breakfast 24 hours.

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.
Before it became the set of one of the most polarizing television series finales of all time, Holsten's was a classic diner and ice cream parlor. Now, it still serves its homemade ice cream and house specials—two burgers, made with beef chopped that day—but camera flashes aren't uncommon, especially near one particular booth. People who sit there tend to order onion rings, because that's what Tony Soprano ordered just before the show ended.
The staff doesn't mind the extra attention that The Sopranos fanbase showers on their restaurant. In fact, they sell T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase, "The Final Episode." But they also stay true to their roots, whipping up diner fare from BLTs to grilled cheese and double-decker club sandwiches. The dessert menu features ice cream in flavors such as vanilla, black raspberry, and butter pecan, all of which can be piled atop brownies or bananas to make a sundae. There's also homemade candy, including truffles, assorted chocolates, and seasonal sweets more appetizing than autumn leaves dipped in honey.
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.
