Zafi’s Luncheonette is a small, old school counter-service diner on the lower east side.
They do have some regular seating, but the counter is the best way to enjoy an old school diner like this. If indoor dining resumes in NYC, you’ll be able to pop a squat there with spacing between stools.
I had their burger, which was meh at best, but the vanilla milk shake made it all worth while. That thing was absolutely perfect.
I’ll be back here to work my way through some of their more traditional diner menu items, like a gyro, club sandwich, chopped steak, etc. Hopefully they will all be better than the burger.

This little neighborhood roadside joint has always been a local fan favorite on Long Island.
The best thing I had here is Flo’s Puppy Dog, which is a split griddled hot dog with bacon and cheese sauce.
The waffle fries and regular fries are both pretty good as well, and if you get one of their lobster rolls, it comes with fries for $21.
Flo’s Burger is served on Martin’s potato bread with Canadian bacon and American cheese. LTOP come on the side.
Really tasty but it can get messy.
But the sleeper here is the Big EZ wrap, with shrimp, lettuce and avocado. Absolutely delicious and refreshing.
This place is a must try, especially in the nice weather. They even have ice cream on one side and a full service bar on the other.
