Gut-busting pleasures are available every day until four in the afternoon at John DeLucie’s spiffed-up remake of the famous Empire Diner on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea, where I repaired with a grizzled fresser of my acquaintance, not long ago, to graze on a light noonday snack of soft scrambled eggs folded in the cacio e pepe style with Parmesan, black pepper, and bits of speck; several pieces of weirdly excellent fried chicken encrusted in crushed sourdough pretzels; and a bite or two of the egg sandwich, composed of sausages, a fresh buttermilk biscuit the size of a small grapefruit, and a whole fried egg.
