There are two reasons why I love Studio Diner:
1) The food never disappoints, unless you're fickle like me.
2) ALWAYS OPEN.
Here's my 3am pigout five hours before I had to submit a paper. I can give Jack Donaghy a run for his money when it comes to stress eating.
"East coast-style" Icelandic Haddock, beer-battered and deep-fried until golden brown. Served with Studio Fries, cole slaw, tartar sauce & lemon.
Studio Diner's got their batter recipe down. Light with the fragrant aroma of beer, it's even better on their onion rings, which I subbed for the mundane frozen fries that would have otherwise accompanied the huge slab of Haddock. Haddock is a pretty lean fish, a fact that sorta off-sets your possible guilt over ordering a fat/calorie bomb. Mm..well...maybe not.
Good pastrami, so-so sandwich. Uh..Hey Roger, you idiot. You just contradicted yourself.
Nope. Allow me to explain. The pastrami, though small in portion, was delicious: peppery, juicy, and tender. The roll was a plain ol' hot dog bun. The problems are quite clear, no?
It's a small sandwich.
Sliced & Marinated Prime Rib, grilled with cheese, spinach, mushrooms, bean sprouts, and onion on a toasted roll.
This...was amazing. The combination of all those flavors, oh-so-tender meat, and gooey cheese gave me a mouthgasm. Here's my O-face: :O I highly recommend this sandwich. Your cardiologist might not, though.
In totally unrelated news, Will of Eclipse Chocolat is having another themed dinner. Check it out.
