For American classics head to The Diner
There are plenty of gourmet burger chains around London but if you’re after good, honest American classics in a Fifties-inspired atmosphere, head to The Diner.
The chain of restaurants has five London outlets – Soho, Camden, Shoreditch, Islington and Kensal Rise – each serving affordable and tasty American food from burgers and sandwiches to hot dogs and burritos, all accompanied by beers, floats and tasty milkshakes.This is simple food – unsophisticated, with all the fat and calories – and irresistibly delicious.
The Diner interior is subtly based on classic Fifties restaurants with plenty of chrome and comfortable booths but the overall look is more sleek than kitch. The fact that most branches seem to be packed no matter when really speaks for the quality of the food and the easy going vibe.
