Diamond Dairy NYC

RichardGee Dec 20, 2009 05:08 PM

Sadly, this diamond of a restaurant recenntly closed after 60 years. It will be sorely missed by those who enjoyed homemade delicious (hungarian) food in a very unpretensious setting.
I guess its just a sign of the times.

    Diamond Dairy was a quintessential New York experience, where you could have fresh blintzes and a great omelet while watching the jewlery dealers open their stalls on the floor below. When I think of Diamond Dairy and Ratners it makes me sad - I miss them. Why did they close?

      Looks like it was over a rent dispute, according to the NY Post.

      Makes me very disappointed never to have gone. Somehow, I wasn't aware of its stature.

        Does anyone remember the original owners of Diamond Dairy? Watching M/M Adler scream at each other in Hungarian added to ambiance of the place. Will miss the heimishe atmosphere of years gone by.
