About this Business
From Our Editors
Filled with chrome-bordered tabletops and soft teal paint, StarLite Diner & Lounge recalls the aesthetics of the 1950s while making room for modern updates. Instead of popping quarters into jukeboxes, diners plug their iPods into vintage speakers at the table. The vinyl booths, vintage signs, and painted spaceships bearing I Like Ike bumper stickers, however, firmly ground the eatery’s look in the past.
StarLite Diner & Lounge's food similarly straddles the past and present with classic comfort-food staples such as meatloaf alongside more modern diner dishes such as cilantro-lime chicken and pesto wraps. Cooks flip grass-fed beef patties and top conventional burgers with such inventive toppings as chili, fried eggs, or Hawaiian combinations of teriyaki and grilled pineapple. Visitors can also take a seat on the outdoor patio, spacious and cozily fenced off from the sidewalk, while they share baskets of sweet-potato tots or funnel fries served with maple syrup and cinnamon-sugar butter.
