Go West, Old Diner

The good people of La Barge, Wyoming, know a great diner when they see one: Moondance Diner, having been banished from Manhattan by greedy land barons, has found a home in Big Sky territory, where it will serve up wholesome food to good folk. That’s the beauty of a freestanding diner, of which Moondance was the last in Manhattan: You can just lift it up and tow it to wherever you like. La Barge doesn’t just want the diner for its nostalgia value: The closest restaurant is a Mexican joint twenty miles to the north. A town made up of 500 residents, one full-time policeman, and what was once the most picturesque diner in New York? We’re making vacation plans.
