The owner of this deli is a long way from his home in New York City, but he has brought a heaping helping of New York along with him. Lively banter between patrons and owner, colorful decor, fresh ingredients, and big portions make this a fun dining experience. Friday nights are theme nights when the deli sports fresh linens and fine silver and serves up dishes from Italy, Spain, Key West, Florida and other exotic locales. Call for reservations for Friday night dinner.
This little diner has been serving scrumptious country-style food for decades. Fresh vegetables and home baked biscuits are a favorite here, as are the burgers and fries. The restaurant is located next door to the Plaza Theatre so it's a perfect choice for hungry moviegoers, although the atmosphere changes at night; it is not a place for a woman to eat alone. Perfect for a casual lunch. The '60s-style decor is more a resistance to change than an attempt at retro styling.
Serving hearty sandwiches, breakfast platters and desserts, this little cafe has been serving downtown workers and Read House guests for decades. The decor shows the age of the cafe: faded linoleum floors and cracked vinyl seats, but the food makes up for the lack of aesthetic charm. Guests of the Radisson Read House Hotel Suites often discover a simple breakfast or lunch is not so simple in the hotel restaurants. If you just want a quick bite and don't care so much about eating healthy, step around the corner to this convenient diner.
