Nickel Diner

The pulled-pork sandwiches and maple-glazed bacon doughnuts at this new (and a tad too self-consciously retro) diner are already cult hits, for good reason. More surprising is the creativity behind the healthier options, like the avocado stuffed with quinoa, corn, squash, and red beans. If only we could persuade the hasty waiters to stop dropping off the check before we’ve ordered one of the decadent desserts.
