Tom's Restaurant probably looks familiar -- the neon sign of the Morningside Heights diner was regularly featured on Seinfeld as a stand in for the fictional Monk's Cafe. The family-owned Greek-American restaurant has been around since the '40s, serving solid diner fare and bottomless cups of coffee to a mixed crowd of Seinfeld fans, upper Manhattan regulars, and Columbia students. Tom's claims to have the best milkshake in town, and we hear the gravy fries aren't half-bad either, especially at 3am.
