Applejack Diner

I finally stopped in for lunch with a friend at a place I've passed for years: Applejack Diner. I walked by it every day for 4 years when I worked at the talk show, but never went inside. I met my friend L for lunch on a cold, snowy day and she suggested this spot!

The menu is overwhelming: page after page of distractingly good possibilities (and breakfast all day!) It took me a good while to settle on the green salad with turkey, veggies, and bacon. I think you know what clinched it for me (psst! It was the bacon).


L ordered the French onion soup, and it looked cheesily fantastic. One look at that super-tempting tendril of cheese and I swore to come back and order this myself.

Doesn't it look absolutely divine?

She also ordered the meatloaf special, which came with a generous serving of brown gravy on the side, green beans, and a baked potato. A feel good Sunday dinner on a weekday. I tried a bite of the meatloaf and it was oniony, tasty, and not at all dry. Plus? Gravyyyyyyy....

Even better than the food was the service--our server was really insistent that we enjoy our food--when I wasn't sold on the salad she told me to try it, and promised that if I didn't love it, she'd whisk it away and bring back something I would like. Her assuring tone sold me, and I was quite happy with the fresh, crunchy, satisfying salad.

If you're wandering around Midtown, stop in at Applejack and enjoy!
