THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lost City Diner Restaurant Review

: When most restaurateurs want to give their diners a retro flair, they break out the Elvis posters and poodle skirts. Lost City Diner, on the other hand, took a Twilight Zone detour into more arcane corners of twentieth-century pop culture. After a long hiatus, Lost City has returned, and it’s still a pitch perfect tribute to vintage science fiction. The walls are lined with enlarged reproductions of lurid Amazing Stories and Fantastic Adventures covers --- “Fish Men From Venus!” --- and the shelves with cool retro-futuristic gadgetry; the waitresses are dressed, space-cadet style, in form-fitting military uniforms and jaunty caps. The food is also a back-to-the-future mix: classic diner chow, milk shakes and other soda fountain specialties, one of the most extensive vegetarian/vegan selections in town, and such offbeat, eclectic offerings as a cornflake-coated Monte Cristo sandwich with raspberry jam and a chicken breast waffle with honey mustard and powdered sugar. The concept is aimed at hipsters, but junior future-mad-scientist types are sure to like this place too --- especially the racks of comic books they can peruse while waiting for their food.
