Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like. 


Johny's Luncheonette, Chelsea, Manhattan

Johny's Luncheonette is an old school diner style restaurant. It's been in business since 1994 and has a look that goes back even further than that. It is a standard greasy spoon style restaurant with basic American cuisine and a few Greek items on it. A counter runs almost the length of the restaurant with the food being prepared in front of you. I continue to go back and I'm always happy that they are still there. Johny owns and still works in the restaurant!
