Old Fashioned Restaurants in NYC?

I am looking for an old-fashioned restaurant in NYC, it can be any type of food. It should not look like a typical "New York City Restaurant." Basically, someplace that can pass as "Aywhere USA." For example: Italian restaurant with red and white checkered tablecloths. Thanks!

  1. As the name implies, I'll chime in with ...

      1. How about Lexington Candy Shop for old-fashioned diner and Eisenberg's Sandwich for, well, old-fashioned diner?

          Ditto Eisenberg's...definately Katz's.

        2. Volare in the Village for old-fashioned Italian.

          Katz for old-fashioned deli.
