Check it out…’New Diamond Cafe’ and ‘Cafe Duke’

Two places that I always check out every time I visit NYC are the New Diamond Cafe on W 47th St and Cafe Duke on W 51st St. Both offer traditional fare as well as some clever creations that are sure to please the palate. Both have a very, very wide selection of foods from a broad range of cultural backgrounds.

-New Diamond Cafe has one of the greatest bacon cheeseburgers I’ve ever had and its huge…and a great price for being in Midtown Manhattan. Very casual and the cooks are pretty cool just make sure you know what you want before you approach the counter. The lines are usually long at lunch, so indecisiveness won’t make you any friends! My personal favorite for ‘on-the-go’ food

Cafe Duke has a great environment that is a bit more upscale than New Diamond Cafe but it is still a great casual spot. Tons of food, beautiful layout, outrageous spread, the type of place you could get comfortable in. You can definitely find something to suit your taste here.
