Are diners ubiquitous? You bet. But the Market Diner is a historical treasure. Built in 1963, it epitomizes space-age design, from the zigzag roof to the nifty counter lighting to the faux snakeskin seats. One of the few architecturally distinctive diners left in Gotham—hell, one of the few diners left, period—Market boasts a tasty, Greek-oriented menu with succulent souvlaki, eight wraps, 22 omelets, and numerous entrées that are broiled (swordfish, salmon, sole), grilled (jalapeño burger) and stuffed (lobster tails with crabmeat). In another nod to days of yore, the children's menu has Cookie Monsters (burger and fries), Elmos (filet of sole sandwich and fries), Grovers (chicken fingers/nuggets and fries) and Berts (spaghetti with meatballs). To top it all off, the staff is a riot. These folks have seen it all, from the trannies at the now-defunct Edelweiss club next door to the livery drivers lining up their stretch limos outside to grab coffee and cake. Dinner stops at 2am, but otherwise this is a 24/7 piece of New York history.
