Seafood and Liquors, with an off-licence. The classic combination of Seafood, Steaks, Chops and Chicken, all near Pennsylvania Station. And while you’re there- why not relax in the Mariner’s Nook Bar and Lounge?
The building is still there, and still has the remains of what looks like it used be a great neon arrow sign. Later became Walker-Hasslinger’s and the Chesapeake Restaurant. For more, see this page.
The interior. Very boxy- lots of hard corners, almost no curves, other than that of the counter and the scalloped edges by the menu-board. It’s leaning towards the more space-age and environmental designs yet to come, while still staying within the confines of a classic 1950s stainless model.
You don’t see too many of this model diner; not many with interiors with this kind of styling. What I have been able to find says it’s a mid ’50s Kullman. I’ve seen Kullman dinettes with similar boxy interiors, but this is the only full-sized diner I’ve been to quite like this. It has been covered over, years ago, with tan brick, with a dining room on the right, making it less recognizable from the road, especially when compared with the New Ideal Diner, just half a mile down the road and across the street. Inside it is essentially in-tact.
