For years after its construction in 1904, the Liberty Theater housed some of Broadway's most popular shows, and the likes of Fred Astaire, Marilyn Miller, and George Cohen graced its stage. Its glitzy interiors, meanwhile, represented the opulence of show business. Today, that grand stage is closed, but its memory lives on in The Liberty Diner. Though recently renovated, the space retains much of its original interior architecture, including the glimmering retro decor and the colorful fish tank where all the actors were kept before every show. To match this spirit, the Diner's kitchen churns out dishes inspired by classic diners and bistros of the 20th century—but with a slightly modern twist. The signature house burger is topped with bacon and bleu cheese, and offered up alongside sandwiches such as a rare ahi tuna steak and a towering open-faced reuben. Hearty Italian pastas topped with seafood or cream sauce, tender bistro-style steak frites, and house specialties such as fish and chips and oven-baked meatballs are also served. Classic house cocktails and wine provide the ideal pairings for every dish.
