Modern Diner (Pawtucket, RI)
Originally uploaded by NetParrot.
One of the only things I liked about living in Belmont, MA was the proximity of my house to the Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown. The Deluxe offered world class diner fare with an eclectic menu with a genuine New England diner ambiance, and finding a new regular breakfast spot isn't always easy, even in New England. For a while, Nick's On Broadway filled the gap, but the tiny cramped spaces, long lines to get in, and eye popping prices have long made it something to settle on rather than something to really look forward to.
Thankfully, Rhode Island is the birthplace of the diner, and I've settled on the Modern Diner in Pawtucket to replace the beloved Deluxe as my breakfast spot of choice. If you're ever in the area, be sure to check it out.
