Among the Soho shopping bags and spontaneous influencer photoshoots, there’s a spot where you can hide and pretend that you live in a simpler town in simpler times. It’s called Landmark Diner, and it’s a very normal place with terse service, cheap eggs, and little packets of jam. That’s exactly what makes this diner so exceptional (in the context of Soho). It feels like it hasn’t been renovated in about half a century, and the food is exactly what you want it to be (especially if you order something with eggs and corn beef hash or the buttery chocolate chip pancakes).
