This place has changed completely. It used to be one of my favorite diners in the neighborhood. Over the last 2 months, I've been noticing the service slowly declining though the food has still been pretty good.
Had my last straw today, though: my omelet came with a big chunk of RUBBER GLOVE fried into it. Was seriously disgusting as i chewed and chewed before realizing.
This, mind you, after an unusually long wait to have a waiter even notice us, an even longer wait to get milk for my coffee and an unacceptably long wait to get our food in the first place.
The manager was nice enough - apologized and brought me another omelet. Which they then charged me for! When I spoke to the waiter, he was rude and said, ""Well, we made you another omelet, didn't we?!""
I told him I wanted to speak with the manager who I guess our waiter went and spoke with himself. The waiter came back and simply placed the check minus the cost of the omelet on the table. No words. The manager never bothered to make an appearance after that, nor said a word as we left. I left this place completely disgusted. Too many great diners in NYC to waste time on a place with bad service and dirty gloves in your food!
