Mansion Diner on 86th & York

Has this diner reopened yet? Last time I was in NY it was being remodeled. They had the best Split Pea Soup on the U.E.S.

    The soups are as good as ever. The beef stew on Tuesdays is still great, but the chicken scampi has taken a nosedive, as has the turkey dinner. The last couple of times the coffee was awful but all in all we still like the place.

      Can anyone post pictures of what it looks like now? I hear it looks great since they remodeled it.

        I just saw the place yesterday after several years and the place looks amazing. I cannot believe the place is the same. The food was also excellent with an expanded menu. Best of luck to the owners whomever they are.

          The Mansion got a facelift and it's been re-opened for months and months already. The food is not great - not now, and it never was. It's a diner and some food there is reliable in that diner way, but that's it. The Mansion is all about the people - not the food. Their pastas are still bad, their soups are usually okay (their matza ball soup is great), and the burger is always decent. And the Greek salad is a safe bet. Sometimes their specials are okay, like lamb chops.
