A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of diner fare at Tommy's.
Tommy's kitchen acrobats slings traditional diner fare and all-day breakfast within a sparkling, retro dining room. Soak up the nostalgia of the black-and-white checkered floor and stainless-steel countertops while doing the twist with the banana-cream-cheese-stuffed and berry-imbued Ultimate french toast ($9.99), or slow dance a number with the Captain's Log, an unstinting helping of homestyle meatloaf treated with bacon, gravy, and caramelized onions ($9.99). The breakfast quesadilla pairs scrambled eggs with cheese to let them tango for an audience of onions, peppers, sausage, and bacon ($6.99). Unlike spotted owls who prefer to drink alone, night owls can cap off an evening of revelry by stopping in for a late-night showdown with Tommy's Million Dollar sandwich—a formidable feat of culinary engineering that erects an edible tower out of a BLT, a grilled-cheese sandwich, and a half-pound hamburger patty ($13.99). Situated near Kingston nightlife, Tommy's is an after-hours sanctuary for pub hoppers and sock hoppers alike.
