The American Diner

Posted on December 14, 2007

I don’t know about you but I have, and will always be, a big fan of the classic American diner. I just can’t help myself. The food is always so good and the service is quick and usually fantastic (although sometimes they are a bit mean but it is usually part of the shtick which keeps things interesting).

Each diner also has its own personality which is what makes it so fun to continually check out new places. This is also why your “home” diner always feels like, well, home.

Needless to say I got pretty excited today when I was checking out my friends latest Flickr pictures. C.C. Chapman had recently been to one of my old Bentley haunts, Wilson’s Diner on Main Street in Waltham, MA (C.C. is a fellow alum too making Wilson’s his old stomping grounds as well).

Seeing this picture lead me to one of C.C.’s new projects. C.C., along with Scott Monty, have started a new site that will chronicle diners and other assorted eateries. This should prove to be a lot of fun to watch. You should go check out the site and subscribe if you’re interested in diners.

Diners are true slices of Americana and they remind us of a simpler time. They are truly a great escape from the hustle of bustle of modern life. Now, time to start exploring the diners of NYC. I have my work cut out for me!

Google Update: Trying to fix this Google stuff has taken a lot of time lately - hence the lack of posts - but I am making some headway. Let’s hope I can get this figured out soon.

    Glad to know that everyone at Bentley has been to Wilson’s. That and Sal’s (may it rest in peace) are two of my all time favorites in the area.

    The new blog is something Scott and I joked about doing and one of these days we’ll really start it up and keep it up. Just so many things going on in the world for all of us.

    Hope the new gig is treating you well. Been a while since we chatted.

    Thanks for the shout-out, Eric. There are some real gems out there that C.C. and I are looking forward to reviewing. And Wilson’s was a great one, that’s for sure.

    BTW, you’ve got my URL listed as a “.con”. I know I may be a little shady, but that’s a new one! ;-)

    Sorry about that Scott! I just fixed the URL for you.
