I have never actually visited Tick-Tock in the daylight! It's on the far corner across the block from my apt. so if I'm taking a cab uptown, I can't miss it. I've been many times with friends after a night out and it's just the perfect ending to the night. The grilled cheese with tomato is a little sloppy, but sooo good. They have fantastic sweet potato fries too. And, it always seems to be packed, even at 4am! It must be the late night spot for many of my neighbors too. Service is prompt, but the only complaint I have is when you want your check, your waiter seems to disappear. I don't know how this compares to other legendary NYC diners, but it's pretty darn terrific!
