  • The patty melt is refined but not annoyingly so, ... while also insuring the correct balance of crunch (toasted rye) and ooze (Swiss cheese and caramelized onions).
  • Amanda Freitag combines the familiar flavors of poached peaches, raspberries, candied almonds, and vanilla ice cream in her newest dessert, Peach Melba. She's also offering a Peach Fuzz cocktail.
  • Crowd is actually unbearable but food is excellent - matzoh ball soup, brussels, apple pie, and the patty melt. Please don't come here so that I can more often.
  • As seen on the Travel Channel's Food Paradise
  • Amanda Freitag opening locavore diner in the former Empire Diner space in late September.
  • Head to Amanda Freitag's revamp for matzo ball soup with bone marrow, crispy Buffalo-style skate wings, Brussels sprouts with chili jam, or a plump cheeseburger with a mountain of crispy fries.
  • Honestly I always thought that the food kinda sucks but this place is so new york as you imagined it as a kid that I feel very bad is closing Hurry up people u have time only until 5/15
  • If the biscuits arent sold out, GET THEM. We also had the salmon pastrami (excellent), the pretzel chicken (super duper) and the butter lettuce (surprisingly really tasty - add the poached egg).
  • The new Empire Diner. Spicy virgin mary so far.
  • Mythique et excellent de surcroit
  • AMAZING. We waited outside for 30 min. in the cold... And I would do it again! Gladly! Food? Phenomenal. We all cleared our plates + got dessert! Go soon + you can see Amanda Freitag at the kitchen!
  • Try the Brooklyn Blackout Cake - Devil's food cake, chocolate pudding. Great.
  • The mushroom risotto croquettes are to die for! ;)
  • get a boylans creamy red birch beer and good late night grub
  • I love the pastrami. Sit at the bar
  • Came in for brunch last Saturday and had the best server Kyle! Will be back to see him soon! Thank youuuu
  • This place still rocks! Not only is it cozy af, but most of menu is absolutely delicious! Skip the toast and deviled eggs. Get the winter squash soup, chicken, steak, or pork chop.
  • The sausage and the fingerlings are really good. The environment is great too.
  • I think that the atmosphere is nice, but the food is not the best.Had the waffle with fried chicken. The poached egg from the plate ended up being hard boiled and the bacon tasted old.
  • Cheese grits sucked, but the autumn soup and the empire omelette were worth it. Good prices too.
