As an upscale diner, Thompson Diner hits all the right marks. The sleek black leather booths and large menu full of quick eats and comfort food is sure to satisfy your stomach. Plus it’s open 24 hours! Located on the main level of the Thompson Hotel (which is also home to the hot sushi spot Wabora and Italian restaurant Scarpetta), it’s perfect for lunch with friends or a business meeting.
I decided to go for a burger. Rather than offering only beef they also have turkey and a veggie option as well. I decided to be a bit different and get a Deep South turkey burger which comes with pulled pork and crispy onions. My friend got the mac and cheese. The turkey was so moist! I really enjoyed this even though the onions were a bit on the salty side. The mac and cheese was not very good. There was not a lot of taste to it. There’s a place nearby called Cheesewerks that specializes in mac and cheese so I think I’ll go there next time if I have a craving. The mac and cheese at Harlem Underground is very good too.
