Unless you know someone from south Brooklyn, you might not have heard of Midwood’s Mirage Diner. This place has everything you’d want in an old school Brooklyn diner, right down to the signed photograph of Doris Day hanging near the register and the Sinatra-heavy jukeboxes at each table. The pastrami reuben here is outstanding, from the buttery, toasted rye bread to the perfect ratios of cheese, sauerkraut, meat, and dressing. Any reuben-lover or diner aficionado should eat this at least once in their lives.
