When Julianne Moore enthuses about the fact that kids got crayons with their meals, you have to wonder if a short film might have suited this story better.

Top Critic

It is a touching, elegiac tale of the rise (and some would say fall) of a colorful New York neighborhood under the relentless march of gentrification.

Top Critic

A briskly paced, unself-consciously edited celebration that matches the giddy vibe of its namesake.

A unique, cherished New York restaurant and its equally singular owner are celebrated in this affectionate documentary.

Film Journal International

David Sigal's documentary may not quite manage to canonize the diner, at least not to flyover country, but it sure makes it sound like a good meal and a great time.
