Morningside Heights Food: Restaurants & Groceries
TOM'S is known as the Seinfeld diner, although the actual Seinfeld did not film there, but that is the diner the characters often meet and chat. It is best to come during the week, as on the weekends are a tourisy diner. The Broadway shake is key, as are French Fries with gravy. The roast chicken dinner is good.
