New Yorkers! If you want to have one final meal at the legendary Empire Diner, you’d better head over to 23rd Street and 10th Avenue as its final day of operation is on May 16, 2010. I paid my last respects tonight with a delicious hamburger and their legendary fries. The diner is being taken over by some trendy coffee shop (literally called Coffee Shop). How unoriginal. It’s a very sad day as a piece of New York history is changing hands. I’ve enjoyed many great meals there and I am very sad to see this place close, but as the old expression goes, all good things never last. RIP Empire Diner.
