Chef Sam Yoo is serving up nostalgic diner classics with a twist inspired by the Chinatown neighborhood below the Manhattan Bridge. Golden Diner’s brunch menu features signature items like the Chinatown Egg and Cheese Sando; Honey Butter Pancakes; and Homemade Granola & Yogurt with pumpkin seeds and orange zest. Korean-inspired drinks include a Soju Bloody Mary and Makgeolli Horchata (with Korean rice wine and a housemade horchata blend).
At this spot from chef Sam Yoo (Torrisi Italian Specialties, Momofuku Ko), nostalgic diner classics with an Asian twist and renditions inspired by its Chinatown neighborhood are served up in a picturesque location below the Manhattan Bridge. Yoo’s talents made Golden Diner a James Beard Award semifinalist in 2020 for Best New Restaurant, and in addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the eatery’s signature Golden Cheeseburger—and its mushroom gochujang sauce—is a must-try.
