The Diamond Restaurant
The Diamond Restaurant has been a neighborhood landmark for more than 60 years, serving up comfort food to local families, politicians, and celebrities alike. The chrome-edged countertops, checkerboard floors, and vinyl booths sparkle from recent updates, and ditto the menu, which brings diner-style favorites into the twenty-first century. Sure, standards like tuna melts and fried chicken are represented, but so are Greek po' boys and meatless options such as black bean burgers and soy hot dogs. But regardless of whether guests opt for a classic or contemporary dish, no meal would be complete without one of the homemade desserts, which include pecan pie, peach cobbler, and banana pudding.
