Empire Diner

Anyone with a Downtown clubbing history has done late night fuel ups here – and now it’s newly revived by Iron Chef Amanda Freitag. Don’t come looking for $5 pizzaburgers. Menu still hews to theme – but now it’s matzoh ball marrow soup and a patty melt that has carmelized onions and a $14 price tag. Thought the Happy Waitress poached egg dish still lists taylor ham (!!!) as an ingredient. Expect more art world types than club kids now – but at least it didn’t become condos.
