One-story and neon-lit, the Arte Moderne Cheyenne Diner looks like it might be more at home out West than in midtown Manhattan. Its stainless-steel rounded lines, window-side booths, and long countertop invoke mid-century visions of drifters, night owls, farmhands, and shift laborers. But the 1940’s Paramount dining car is no relic. The grill sizzles around the clock, feeding uniformed hotel, post office, and Garden employees, tie-wearing nine-to-fivers, and pilgrims seeking a slice of Americana. Comfort food is prepared fast and in brawny portions. Burgers—20 kinds—are the specialty. The patties are all-American beef, health-conscious turkey, chicken, veggie or bison. Breakfast is served all day; other lunch and dinner options include hot and cold sandwiches, soups, pastas, steaks and bison steaks, Lo-Cal Delights and—this is New York—Greek and Italian specialties. Far more delightful than any diet offerings, though, are Cheyenne’s homemade cakes, creamy milkshakes and ice cream sodas. And while the interior has been updated, with new Formica tables, restaurant supply chairs, fake flowers, and a flat-screen TV, a pastel paint-by-numbers-like mural of a Cherokee riding a buffalo will remind you of the mythologized (people never rode bison) Old West.
