Rolling Stone Magazine
once named the South Street Diner as The Place to start your spring break.
The Diner has been mentioned in a number of national magazines. Locally, the The Phantom Gourmet called us the "The Greatest Round the Clock Diner." The Boston Phoenix has named us best greasy spoon two years in a row in their annual Reader's Poll, and they have used The Diner to explain the wonders of being Mayor on the social networking site Foursquare. Stuff Boston said The Diner is one of the "top 10 unexpected places to find a date", and Boston Magazine said the South Street Diner is a go-to destination for Boston's "Midnight Cowboys".
In the political realm, we've hosted our share of candidates and electeted officials, both local and national. CNN once stopped in for a man-on the street interview with local patrons asking them about campaign finance reform. Yeah. Us.
The Diner is a great place to go for "Midnight Meatloaf", said a book called Off the Beaten Path: Boston, though we think we are pretty easy to find.
We've also run into a little trouble with the new neighbors, which fetched us a bit of press (we'll let the Boston Herald explain), and we've seen a little bit of inadvertent scandal. A night at The Diner is always unique.
