Viand Restaurant pulls from only the classiest pages of American history to create a Zagat-rated, classic New York–style luncheonette open 24 hours a day. There, wafting around key-lime booths and stools, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingles with that of juicy burgers during lunchtime, bowing to the heady scent of broiled lamb chops and traditional Italian specialties for dinner. Like the ambassadors of Candy Land, servers cross over the checkered black-and-white floors with an entourage of sweets, from fried cheesecake to german chocolate cake to lemon meringue. For early risers, three-egg omelets and stacks of pancakes jump-start the day, pairing nicely with a freshly baked blueberry muffin.
