New York has more than its fair share of fine dining establishments, and many delis to be sure, but sometimes nothing heals the soul better than the cheap sandwiches, fries, omelets and around-the-clock banana pancakes served up at a classic NYC greasy spoon. Of course, diners are more than just 24-hour griddle factories; the best ones double as a fading oasis of simple 1950s ambiance — one that's being drowned out by chain sub shops and vegan burger bistros. After spending $40.00 on burgers and fries on our first trip to New York City, 21 years ago, Mr. P and I decided to seek out and find a few homey diners. Places we felt at ease, comfortable in our jeans and to enjoy good food without breaking the bank. Luckily, New York City has got many classic diners to choose from — here are ten of the city's best.
