The former Expressway Diner in Cleveland’s Old Brooklyn neighborhood sat empty for years after closing in 2009. But in the summer of 2017 it found new life as the City Diner.
Owner/chef Ed Michalski creates his menu of made-from-scratch American favorites, laced with flavor notes from the Mediterranean, Asia and Latin America, with fresh ingredients that are locally sourced as much as possible. Like any good diner, the menu features all-day breakfast with an extensive list of familiar favorites, loaded burgers, club sandwiches, and comfort food entrees for lunch and dinner, including chicken pot pies, pot roast, pierogies and meatloaf. Close with a sinfully delicious sundae. It’s all at pocketbook-friendly prices you’d expect from a classic diner-style eatery.
