North Star Diner & Shanghai Room is the coolest diner in the city. It’s open 24 hours a day, and has gold glittery booth cushions as well as an entire wall dedicated to framed portraits of real astronauts. Most importantly, their food - like the eggs benedict over corned beef and crispy hash browns with rye toast (a.k.a. a deconstructed breakfast reuben) is great. Come back to the neighborhood after work and go to the bar next door, which has karaoke five days a week as well as the full diner menu - because pancakes taste just as good at midnight.
