From a press release:
When The Diner in Adams Morgan opened its doors in 2000 it the menu was one page, back and front, full of dishes that were high quality and injected a sense of playful spin on diner fare. To celebrate the newly launched menu, reminiscent to the one presented 13 years ago, this Monday, from 5 to 11 p.m. The Diner will allow patrons to try out the new menu at 50% off.
The intention at the core of this menu change has always been to fully realize The Diner’s mission statement of “exceeding the culinary expectations of the traditional diner”.
“In reducing the size of our menu, we’ve done our best to focus on the dishes that we are proudest of, the ones that exemplify what we do best, and the ones that add an unexpected twist to comfort food classics,” explains The Diner GM, Clementine Thomas. “It’s in many ways a return to our roots”
Featured new items include:
Bread Pudding French Toast with citrus whipped cream and fresh berries
Homemade Pimento & Cheese Dip
Grilled Chicken Sandwich with homemade onion marmalade, tomato aioli and crispy potato chips
The Boss Hog- a signature pulled pork sandwich smothered in homemade BBQ sauce and topped with broccoli slaw
Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf
Grilled Salmon served over jalapeno cheese grits with cremini mushrooms and pesto citrus butter
Angel Hair Pasta tossed with farmer’s market raw tomato sauce (much lighter and summery than typical marinara).
Other menu changes include a separate late night menu. The Diner, located at 2453 18th Street NW is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Full menus can be accessed online.
