American City Diner

Sit down, order a black and white milkshake, and play a Blood, Sweat & Tears song at a table jukebox at the fun, ’50s-themed American City Diner. As it is in Heaven, breakfast is served all day, but also try the open-face hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes, the diner standby bacon cheeseburger, or any blue-plate special. The servers must come from Jersey, as their sass is undeniable and totally lovable. Watch out, though: owner Jeffrey Gildenhorn sometimes dons a train conductor hat as toy train circles around the tracks above diners’ heads. ACD can make for a great (sober) date night though, with free movies projected onto a large screen on the patio; the diner shows everything from Grease to Some Like It Hot to Fatal Attraction.
For: A Jersey diner experience in the nation’s capital.

Entrees: $3-$13. 202-244-1949. 5532 Connecticut Ave, NW
