New rest. in old Diamond Dairy digs - 47th Street NYC

Noticed a new kosher dairy establishment opened in the old Diamond Dairy spot on W. 47th Street off of 5th in NYC. Any hounds have the scoop?

  1. Whatever it is, it can never replicate the Diamond Dairy blintzes and its "hunky" ambiance.

    1. What was your favorite thing to eat at Diamond Dairy? They made a rice pudding that was about a foot high, and it came with a warm cherry sauce-delicious!

        Blintzes. No one does a good Blintz nowadays. Or Pirogen.

          Their humongous potato pancakes and the parve cholent with potato kugel (served by surly Marie RIP).

            My fave was tuna LT on rye toast coffee....& topped off w/chocolate cheesecake
            and no leaving off the ATTITUDE which only added flavor for the lunch chevreh

            The old gang misses Mr. & Mrs. Adler !!

        2. I dropped by for lunch two days ago and found the service to be terrible and line staff unusually uninformed. Who in NYC doesn't know what a nova sandwich is? What's so hard about "cream cheese on the side"? Oy.

          1. The only positive thing it has in common with the original is the view of the exchange below. Otherwise, nothing chowish here. My experience was similar to ChefJohn's .
