"We don't go to restaurants for the food. We go for the people who make the food and for the people who serve the food. We eat out to help us feel good feelings about the people we eat with. Restaurants create memories. Every page in Diner captures those feelings: of being in a special place with special people at a special time, sharing delicious things, finding community, and feeling grateful restaurants exist. No, things aren't like they used to be, but Diner keeps delivering--all of that--for everyone."--Carla Lalli Music, author of That Sounds So Good and Where Cooking Begins

"I remember Kate, Andrew, and Mark laying each tile on the floor of what would become Brooklyn's social and culinary hearth. Within the walls of Diner is nothing short of magic. So much so that I've considered illegally squatting in the back of the airstream on numerous occasions. But instead of resigning to a life of crime, I shall delight in the beauty of this essential book, Diner."--Lake Bell, filmmaker, actress, and author of Inside Voice

"Diner is a twenty-five-year-old institution and is, unquestionably, one of New York City's most influential restaurants, and this book acts as a love letter to the team's intense dedication to community, sustainability, and eating deliciously. I can't tell you how many memorable meals I've had at Diner, but I can say confidently that it's more than any other place in the world. I hope Diner: Day for Night will change your life the way eating there has changed mine."--Andy Baraghani, author of The Cook You Want to Be

"I have dined at Diner since it opened. Even when I moved to the other side of Brooklyn, I continued to visit often. I've had so many important meetings and parties there. It is so rare that a restaurant can keep making food at this level year after year. This place is one of the reasons I will never leave New York City."--Simone Leigh, artist, winner of the Venice Biennale Golden Lion
