According to most restaurant critics, the perfect American meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic American cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of classic American diner fare at The Soda Fountain at Woolworth Walk.
Fully restored to its original 1938 splendor as a Woolworth's luncheonette, The Soda Fountain whips up nostalgic noshables amid the converted confines of a historic department store turned art gallery. Classic sandwiches build the bulk of the menu, offering timeless tastes such as the Woolworth's BLT ($4.95), fried bologna ($4.75), and corned-beef Reuben ($5.95). Grillaholics can opt for a veggie dog ($2.95) or a freshly charred beef frank ($2.95), while those who prefer their meals to remain name-less can spoon on the anonymously appetizing homemade soup of the day ($2.95). Fountain fanatics can further indulge their inner child with old-fashioned desserts made from hand-dipped ice cream, including banana splits ($5.50), creamy malts and shakes ($3.95), fizzy ice-cream sodas ($3.50), or a red-cow ice-cream float, brewed with classic Cheerwine soda ($3.50).
Complete with red-cushioned stools, stainless-steel accents, and a wraparound lunch counter, The Soda Fountain's décor offers a fitting setting for diners looking to share a soda while discussing the timeless appeal of radio dramas. Once sufficiently stuffed, diners can feast famished eyes upon the art-filled halls of the Woolworth Walk, a gallery of local artwork now inhabiting the legendary department store's interior.
