“I am looking for a regular diner”

“Dear PoPville,

I am looking for a regular diner – I’ve been in DC for three years but I haven’t quite found what I’m looking for. Do you have any recommendations?? Back in NY, there’s a family owned Greek diner on almost every block, do we have that here? Doesn’t have to be Greek, obviously, but small and family owned is a plus. An actual diner, not whatever that boujee bag of lies is on 18th. I’m looking for a place for an omelette, breakfast potatoes, coffee in a beige ceramic cup, soup when you’re sick, and hopefully paper place mats that have ads for local lock smiths. Mt Pleasant/Columbia Heights/Petworth/16th Street Heights please!!”

Ed. Note: I wouldn’t exactly call the Diner on 18th a “boujee bag of lies” though that is a phenomenal line (maybe Unconventional Diner…) Anyone know the current deal at American City Diner? As for omelette, breakfast potatoes, coffee – how about the IHOP? It’s a chain but locally owned. I’m gonna tweet George Pelecanos to see if he has any recommendations for proper Greek Diners. Stay tuned.
