Nickel & Diner is not your momma's diner. Opened in 2016 by a young couple from Hong Kong, the restaurant is a modern, upscale version of the traditional diner concept. The space is like a lifestyle Instagram dream with modern, sharp design elements everywhere. Patrons may grab a drink from their to-go coffee stand or sit at one of the many counter seats and booths. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with the menu changing slightly throughout the day. Breakfast ranges from classics like eggs benedict to more adventurous offerings like a kale cashew bowl with sweet potato, avocado, asparagus, green beans & farro. Dinner is more upscale with items like steak tartare, crab fettuccine, and roasted branzino. The burger with griddled onions & American cheese is worth the trip alone. Full bar coming soon.
