120 Diner4:00 PM
I'm not sure why, but I constantly crave mac 'n cheese. Moreover, there are many days I just crave comfort food. I'm so happy to find out that 120 Diner fulfills all those cravings and more. With a spread like this, it's too easy to say yes, even though your healthy diet is saying no.
Located just steps away from the Financial District, Xiao (@xiaoeats), Sandi (@foodaholicblog_) and I decided to stop by 120 Diner (@120Diner) on a weekday for comfort food. After looking at the menu, we quickly settled for a couple items that were a 'must' in our books.
Peach Fuzzy Mojito was a must-order after reading the name of that cocktail, while beer was a second choice. They have a pretty decent list of cocktails too! But onto the food - we ordered a number of items to share between us three. Keep scrolling to see what goodness we ordered!
Honey Garlic Jumbo Chicken Wings
Bruschetta - tomato, basil & parmesan on a warm baguette
Hogatropolis Poutine - curds, with chicken gravy, with pulled pork, strip & double smoked bacon
Mandy's Mac & Cheese with Double Smoked Bacon - three cheeses in a big-portioned classic. It was also served with a side of house greens.
Spinach & ricotta ravioli with your choice of a mushroom & cognac cream sauce or marinara sauce (we ordered it with the mushroom sauce, as you can see!)
Chocolate Brownies - house baked warm brownies with walnuts & whipped cream with a scoop of ice cream
Strawberry Tall Cake
With such an amazing spread, I personally enjoyed the mac & cheese the most. I mean, who doesn't love mac & cheese?! (If you don't, bye). It was so cheesey, and it honestly helped me relax from a stressful day at the office. It's just so comforting! The ravioli was another delicious dish, and I'd have to say the cream mushroom sauce was a winner. Even the server told us that he preferred it over the marinara sauce. And to end off such a comforting meal, you can't go wrong with brownies and ice cream. The brownies are baked in-house with walnuts and topped with a generous serving of vanilla ice cream - mmmm.
Xiao has the scoop on the Bruschetta, Hogatropolis Poutine and Strawberry Tall Cake. You can read about it here. Ah just so good. I can't wait to go back for more! We went on a Tuesday, and they actually have live music playing! So if you're into that, you should definitely check out their music night schedule here and their comedy night schedule here. Until next time, 120!
