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.

Fancy though it may be, Eleven Madison Park is surprisingly lively. But make no mistake, this is fine dining at its most serious.
We wish there was a Daily Provisions on every corner, so that we would never be far from their excellent breakfast and lunch.
