‘Come to Us, Pilgrim’: Empire Diner Closes

The Empire Diner closed up shop this weekend, staying open til midnight Saturday and hosting “wrap-up party” for regulars yesterday.

“Come to us, Pilgrim,” the Empire blog invited readers, “and take sustenance for Body and Soul on this day of Leave Taking and Goodbyes.”

According to NewYorkology, the last Blue Plate special was “a sauteed chicken cutlet, cream Dijon sauce with ham, peas and onions, brown rice and salad.”
