THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED New City Diner Restaurant Review: HURRICANE KATRINA: this establishment is currently closed. For a New Orleans Travel Update as well as resources, information and help click here. The New City Diner is a caféteria that goes the extra mile, turning out flavorful, approachable dishes with a consistency rarely found in such places. The chicken-and-sausage gumbo is chock-full of both, in an expertly seasoned broth. The fish, whether fried or broiled, is reliably fresh and moist, and the always-crisp salads are done with flair. The lines are always long at peak breakfast and lunch hours, but an excellent sense of organization prevails, making the wait no longer than five minutes or so. The spotless dining areas and quick table busing make the New City Diner a godsend for a hungry soul with limited time and a taste for bargains.
