Not 50 yards from one of the Upper West Side’s busiest subway stations, the Strand Diner is something of an oasis of tranquility. At any meal—breakfast, lunch, or dinner—you might find this eatery virtually empty, allowing each random customer his or her pick of the twenty or so spacious booths spread out amid the fake hanging plants, mock Doric columns, and wall steles depicting scenes of antiquity. But there are a few reasons why the Strand is untroubled by crowds: dry omelets, overcooked burgers, and a chicken Marsala with a congealed red sauce. If privacy is what you’re looking for, you’ve found it; if guilt-inducing grub is your pleasure, look elsewhere.
