THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED New City Diner Restaurant Review

: Don’t let the diner exterior fool you. It may have been built in 1945, but the food inside is every bit 2000, and there are new specials daily. One day, the special may be cumin pan-roasted grouper with Creole sauce over jalapeño Cheddar mashed potatoes. The next, the offering may be grilled amberjack with moho glaze over saffron rice. And, if you’re not certain yet, Dorothy, that you’re not in ordinary diner-land anymore, how about this creative ditty: grilled goat cheese-stuffed filet mignot with portobello demi-glace? Is chicken your bag? If so, don’t expect plain fried or broiled entrées. How about walnut-crusted chicken or a Parmesan-crusted version over angel hair pasta?
