Standard Diner Review
The Standard occupies a 1930's Texaco station with high ceilings and massive plate-glass windows. It's a notch up from casual, serving upscale yet affordable takes on diner standbys. The extensive menu dabbles in meal-size salads (try the Southwestern cobb), burgers (including a terrific one topped with bourbon butter), sandwiches, and traditional diner entrées given nouvelle flourishes (country-fried tuna with green chile pesto, bacon-wrapped and porcini-crusted meat loaf). Kick everything up with a side of truffle-pecorino french fries, and save room for the fancy milk shakes in novel flavors such as cherry almond or Guinness.
