First Look at Bowery Diner, Where the American and French Elements Are Sympathique

A sea of turquoise and white.

Having conquered pizza, on Sunday Motorino’s Mathieu Palombino will don the cap of diner man with Bowery Diner, an homage to both classic American eateries and French brasseries. The 130-seat space looks the diner part, with turquoise panels, abundant stainless steel, and a classic counter-and-stool setup. Palombino’s menu is nostalgic, too, consisting of fare like a Reuben, double-patty burgers, and (as we mentioned) more contemporary eats such as a Long Island duck salad and French-y stuff like steak tartare. Like the diners of yore, this one stays open late, but unlike those, here you can drink cocktails — or perhaps boozy milkshakes. It’s dinner-only for now, till midnight during the week, and till 2 a.m. on weekends, with breakfast and lunch to follow soon. Scope it out for yourself in our slideshow.
