Settle into a booth at one of these classic diners, serving up comfort food with a side of retro flair.

Historic Village Diner, Red Hook, NY

13 of 24

When Arleen Harkins and her husband purchased this Red Hook diner in 1983, she immediately began a successful campaign to have it listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The structure dates back to the ’30s and looks frozen in time, even if dishes include ahi tuna in a sesame ginger sauce. “I like to be creative,” explains Harkins. “We have preserved the décor, but as for the menu, when we find something fun to do, we will put it out there.” The most creative special? A bread-bowl Reuben soup, complete with sauerkraut, Swiss, corned beef, and mustard.
