Village Voice's Description
Yes, this reconfigured diner next to the New Museum still qualifies as a diner,
with an intriguing list of double-patty hamburgers, of which the best substitutes a house–cured plank of pastrami for one of the patties. But it's so much more: there's a full menu of sea creatures that may be assembled into plateaux de mer (yay, whelks!), plus entrées that you'd more likely to find in a French brasserie, including a duck leg confit playfully sided with curly fries and an Alsatian choucroute garni that features just about every sausage you can think of—including kielbasa. And make sure to save room for desserts, which are large enough for two to share.
Tips from foursquare
Despite its name, BD is far from any old diner, as it includes raw bar offerings like oyster- & snow crab-loaded seafood towers and specials like roasted duck breast w/ applesauce.
“Though it doesn’t always succeed at either, Bowery Diner’s menu aspires to satisfy adult cravings as well as childhood ones.” When in doubt, order one of their creamy milkshakes.
The Bowery Diner serves breakfast until 5 p.m., dishing morning staples like omelettes, granola and Belgian waffles—served with not-so-standard bacon, frozen custard and chocolate sauce.
The Bowery Diner does mid-20th century Americana on creatine with all the finery you'd expect (big ole burgundy booths, stainless paneling, concrete floor, dessert case).
Wifi is pancakes.
