We’re back again!
This time we thought we’d step back in time and visit the Bridgeview Diner, down on 4th Avenue and 90th Street in Bay Ridge for a slightly grander experience for our Egg & Cheese on a Roll competition. This place is huge for a diner.
There’s a lot of staff around to escort us to our table, which was nice. Then there was the person who came to drop off some water for us, and of course the lady who was waiting the table and taking our order. She was the one wearing bobby-socks.
They were all nice. Considering it was only 8:15 on a Sunday morning.
So how was it? I think we both agreed it was pretty damn good. Again, we opted for the Egg, Cheese and Potato (kinda like home fries) on our rolls, and of course the regulation coffee. We were given the option of one egg or two (another nice touch), but the whole ensemble scored highly on promptness, nice waitstaff and good atmosphere, if a little dated. The coffee was a meh however. But we’ve come to expect that so we deliberately set our bar lower.
I mentioned stepping back in time since there were some nice, almost vintage touches in the wait staff, decor and table place mats. One might even say, it was cute. The ‘cocktail guide’ place mat underneath our sandwich you can see a glimpse of above, is really cute and retro-looking, although I fear it was not in an ironic sense. All in all, I’d give the Bridgeview Diner a resounding 8/10. Nice all-round job, you guys.
