On New Year's Eve 1998, Andrew Tarlow, along with Mark Firth, opened Diner out of a repurposed dining car under the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn. Within the decade, it single-handedly became one of the city's most influential restaurants, giving birth to a Brooklyn mini-empire—including Marlow & Sons, Roman's, and Achilles Heel—and an ethos of community, sustainability, and eating local.
In Diner: Day for Night, Tarlow takes us back to the restaurant that brought the farm-to-table movement to Brooklyn.
Featuring 48 flavorful recipes and evocative photography, this fun and whimsical cookbook takes us through the history of Diner, a poetic homage to a lively place as the day shifts from morning to night, both intimate and welcoming.
