Area: Lower East Side
The Remedy Diner is one of the only food joints in the Lower East Side that is open late night, and for that alone it has a good reputation amongst the locals and those who use the neighborhood only for its nightlife. A typical New York diner in almost every aspect, Remedy stands out because of its spaciousness and its incredibly friendly and accommodating staff.
The Tex-Mex burger’s patty was full of flavor, and the pepper jack cheese was a perfect match for the huge slices of avocado that topped it. Ranch dressing came on the side, allowing us to use it as much or as sparingly as we wanted on the burger. We used it a lot.
The Bacon Cheddar Burger was a similar source of delicious flavor. The bacon wasn’t particularly recognizable, but the cheese and barbecue sauce helped to make this sandwich memorable.
Now, these weren’t the most exquisite burgers we’ve ever had, but they cost almost nothing and were surprisingly delicious for an unknown commodity from a diner. Furthermore, the fries were a total winner, as they gave the meal a tasty and welcome crunch.
