Dining room at Cafeteria, New York, NY

Cafeteria Restaurant Review

: Decked out in postmodern white, chrome and plastic, this high-style yet casual eatery has both everything and nothing in common with your typical school cafeteria. Comfort food classics---including macaroni and cheese, burgers, and big goopy salads---are prepared with only a bit more flair than in the lunchrooms of your youth. Late at night and during Sunday brunch, Cafeteria---with its mix of muscle-bound Chelsea Boys and skimpily clad club-going girls---is a prime people-watching spot. By day, the dining room is a relaxing lunch stop for tired shoppers and aging hipsters with small kids in tow.
