Fodor's Review

Mark Bee, the local restaurateur behind favorite gastropub N. 3rd, bought the Silk City Diner in 2006, polished off its grease-coated, 1950s-era pink Formica counter, and started serving updated comfort food including a fierce plate of buttermilk fried chicken, cilantro-spiked calamari, the city's best bowl of mac-and-cheese (baked with a garlic bread crust), and some lighter fare (a honey-roasted beet salad) should you want to go next door to the bar and lounge and dance 'til dawn beneath the disco ball. The new and giant outdoor beer garden is a great place to hang out in the warmer months.
