Proprietor Nick Kotrides's lunch and dinner menus amp up traditional diner cuisine with modern panache. An exposed kitchen affords patrons line-of-harpoon access to the grill where skilled chefs pan-sear lunchtime crab cakes ($12) served with zesty chipotle mayonnaise and fry up crispy calamari ($11.50) with sweet-chili-lime dressing. A caribbean shrimp and mango salad ($10) strums taste buds with black-bean-and-pineapple salsa on a stage of mixed greens as waiters weave past booths with stacks of burgers, forever awaiting the arrival of Wimpy. Empire Grill’s dinner menu sees the 12-ounce hand cut new york strip steak ($20) outstrip a steaming baked potato as spicy sausage and shrimp penne pasta ($17) passes the lips at the same moment as its spicy tomato-cream sauce.

Modern light fixtures dangle from the high ceilings of Empire Grill's central dining room, where semicircle booths and cushioned banquettes flank a fully stocked bar (today's Groupon is not valid for alcohol). Flat-screen HD televisions and free WiFi entertain patrons bored of making faces at the chefs.

Empire Grill

Proprietor Nick Kotrides’s open-kitchen concept offers Empire Grill patrons a low-flying bird’s-eye view of chefs plating hand-cut 12-ounce steaks and Cajun shrimp alfredo. Modern light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows keep the two-story diner bright and welcoming, and semicircle booths surround a stocked bar. Flat-screen high-definition televisions and free WiFi let patrons tweet their most up-to-date thoughts on big games and sated stomachs inhibiting their ability to digest the importance of big games.

Relly nice place and service. I will be back. Would love to see you attact more cutomers, maybe work funtions or live music that can draw a crowd.

Food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Waitress Melissa was wonderful. The service was fast, and even after we paid the bill we stayed on and visited. More coffee was offered.
