My New York Food: Miss Peppermint

City Diner

2441 Broadway, New York, NY 10024

“I was excited to move to New York—but when I got there, nothing felt familiar. Eventually I found City Diner. Back then, it was open 24 hours and was filled with business professionals by day; by night, it was teeming with rambunctious college students and after-club crowds looking to continue the party. City Diner was perfect. The Art Deco interior feels like you’re eating in the spire of the Chrysler Building, and the VERY extensive menu is as appetizing as it is confusing. My go-to is a bacon cheddar turkey burger deluxe, a coffee milkshake, AND, of course, a peppermint tea.”
