In 2021, this quintessential UWS restaurant Old John’s Luncheonette reopened in the same 67th Street location with a new name, and a spruced-up dining room, and amazing homemade ice cream. This is a great place to eat a thick, satisfying burger and drink a martini with someone near Lincoln Center, but we’d also recommend bringing some children in your life for grilled cheese and ice cream sundaes. Despite being revamped, Old John’s still has old school charm - jazz playing over the speakers, staff who have been working there for years, and egg creams at the ready.
