Prospect Heights: Home to A Very Fun, Very Gay Diner That Serves Cereal Instead of Bread
Treat yourselves in Prospect Heights at Olmsted, a super-mod American eatery with chef-farmers that are dedicated to ingredients, ambiance, and inventiveness. The creative farm-to-table cuisine produces highly individual and delightful dishes from carrot crepes, decorated with littleneck clams and sunflower, to Buckwheat Spätzle Mac and Cheese. All this and more is in a beautifully spare and simply romantic restaurant garden, with perfect shades of wood and luscious arrangements of plants giving it that cute contemporary feel. P.s. their frozen yogurt is not your average frozen yogurt, and it’s drizzled in lavender honey. So yeah, share a couple spoonfuls.
After, make your way to MeMe’s Diner to up the fun. Touted by its owners as being “very, very gay,” this spot is making waves with its emphasis on inclusivity in a welcoming environment that also serves up diner snacks like BBQ meatballs, patty melts and mac and cheese sprinkled with potato chips. Wash it all down with a serving of MeMe’s punch, made with rum, ginger, passion fruit, lime, cava, and bitters. In lieu of a bread basket, this place starts patrons with bowls of mixed children’s cereals (think Lucky Charms and Froot Loops) on the house. Basically, the most #Goals night out ever.
