A very sad day in May.
Today, May 15, the iconic Empire Diner in NYC will be serving their last meal.
The Empire Diner has been a NYC institution, open 24 hours, 7 days a week, serving Chelsea residents, hungry (& drunk) night owls and tourists for 35 years.
I started going there in the 80's after late night parties and my husband & I had our first date there in 1986.
The landlord lost her lease and they will be looking for a new space.
Though the food is not the same as it was back then, it's still a place to go when you are hungry at 2 a.m. and looking for an omelet or burger in the middle of the night.
I am sad.
Florent closed and now this. Is someone trying to tell me something?
