#861: Neptune Diner

18 Jan

This diner is nothing special, probably, but the fact that I’ve lived close to it for over 3 years meant that I needed to visit it.

It’s big, and you see its sign when taking the bus to the airport through Astoria, and apparently David Bowie ate there in a movie, which may be the closest I’ll ever come to interacting with a celebrity, so that adds to its specialness, I suppose.

Add to that the giant plate of spaghetti and meatballs I got, along with a salad, for $12.95, and you have yourself an incredibly adequate, if not spectacular, dining experience.

“Nothing special,” when it comes to restaurants in an age of gimmicks and outrageous prices can actually be perfectly enjoyable.
