Joe Junior is an old-school diner in Gramercy that’s perfect for when you don’t want to spend a lot of money, put on anything more complicated than sweatpants, or wait in line for breakfast. The space is small, with some tables and counter seats, and service is fast - so you’re here to eat eggs, a burger, or whatever your normal diner order is, then go about your day of running errands in the neighborhood and snooping around to see if you can find anyone’s lost key to Gramercy Park.

As we've said before, finding quality Mexican food in New York City is like finding something on MTV that doesn't make the planet dumber. Mexico Lindo is the needle in the haystack, and we've been satisfying our Mexican cravings there for years.
Bar Jamón is basically Casa Mono's waiting room. However, for that First/Early in the Game Date, where dinner feels too formal but you are also starving, Bar Jamón was designed for you.
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
