St. Patrick’s Day

Did you hear about the leprechaun who worked at Diner? He was a short order cook.

Happy St. Paddy’s readers, time to get rowdy!

Best start and/or finish the day with a homemade, boozed-up spin on McDonald’s terrifying Shamrock Shake.


Check out this guide to your shake dreams, complete with fresh mint syrup.

We were incredibly inspired by the Matisse show at MoMA.

Here is his stained glass design at the Dominican chapel in France.

American Songbook

We are so excited for Diner Journal friend Steven Reker to appear in the American Songbook series at Lincoln Center this Friday, February 27.

“Brooklyn-based artist Steven Reker marries indie rock melodies and irresistible movement for an infectious blend of pop music and performance art. An alumnus of David Byrne’s touring band, composer for choreographer Jodi Melnick’s recent work at BAM, and guest musical curator for PS122, the interdisciplinary performer and founder of the music-dance project People Get Ready presents brand new material and invites shared exploration of an entirely new genre.”

It’s gonna be grrrrreat! Buy your tickets.

Road Burgers

We’ve kinda got a thing for the rundown burger joints you find on long distance drives, when a mediocre patty tastes like a million bucks in your mouth.


This one discovered on a winding drive across Washington. A shocking amount of milkshakes were consumed.
