Old School Diners Featured in The Best Diners in New England Book

I know that the theme of this blog is to write with warmth and admiration about the great Boston and New England businesses, restaurants and attractions that are no longer there, but I would like to take a moment to focus on existing old school diners.

Recently, I wrote an ebook, The Best Diners in New England that reveals 50 of the top diners in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The book can be read on your smartphone, laptop, tablet or computer. Hope you get to read the 200 pages covering these local, national treasures!

Surprisingly, many area diners have survived the onslaught of fast food chain restaurants and bad economies. Thanks goodness! It is a true revelation sitting in these retro diners, eating some great comfort food and being served by salt-of-the-earth waitresses surrounded by all that neon and chrome. It is like going back in time -- that is, like going back to the simpler places and times that we wish never went away.

Some surviving and thriving local diners I wrote about in the book: Wilson's Diner in Waltham, Kelly's Diner in Somerville, the Agawam Diner in Rowley, the Red Wing Diner in Walpole, Casey's Diner in Natick, the Delexe Town Diner in Watertown, Don's Diner in Plainville, the Owl Diner in Lowell, and the Little Depot Diner in Peabody.

All these diners seems to be doing quite well, but I say, go there now as you never know. Remember the restaurants we thought would never go away but did -- like the Hilltop Steak House in Saugus, Christo's in Brockton, Benjamin's in Brockton, Benjamin's in Taunton and Finnerty's Country Squire in Wayland? Always enjoy the moment for we never know what the future brings -- especially in a diner where the authentic retro feel is often intact. I chose 50 diners to include in the book and my hope is that they all stay around forever.

What a tremendous experience instantly feeling that wonderful vibe of yesteryear. Hope to see you at the diner some time soon.
