Majestic Diner (Featured)
For all the debauchery and bleary-eyed clubbing that ordering a plate of hash browns at 4 a.m. entails, THE MAJESTIC is the only place to go.

For all the debauchery and bleary-eyed clubbing that ordering a plate of hash browns at 4 a.m. entails, THE MAJESTIC is the only place to go. However, um, altered a state you might be in, the seasoned waitresses have seen it all.

Katharine Krasnow’s BREAD GARDEN is not the biggest bakery in town. But it’s been our favorite since it opened and instantly transferred 15 pounds of buttery raisin scones from the display case to our abdominal region. Krasnow, given to amiably chattering to herself after powdering her face with flour, treats bread as the living presence it is. Her raisin-nut bread makes beautiful music with many cheeses. Her country Italian loaf loves to become a sandwich. Her pastries? The safest sex we’ve ever had. less...
