Pearl Diner

A good counter sandwich, with two kinds of pickles & no hurrying along.  You'll get well looked after here. Dwarved by the high-rise buildings around it, the place looks smaller than it really is, though its restrooms are matchbox size, and you should be ready to be flexible   It's been around since the 50s, & walking winding Pearl Street, where old city & modern city meet, you catch your breath when you first see it.   It is a pearl.  I wish the name above the Diner sign lit up, but even without it that neon sign is a thing of beauty from all angles.

I've always wanted to try this place, but it's closed when ever I walk by. I love that last photo - especially the defiant little brick building.

This is a great diner. Maybe it shuts early because of its location?
