A question that has been asked many times but without adding any definition.
We like to think of ourselves as 'travelers' rather than tourists as we prefer to blend in with the local culture as much as possible to gain the best experieince.
We will be making our first ever visit to the USA as a whole and our imagined picture of an American Diner would be something similar to 'Happy Days' or a converted railroad car. We would also prefer to go somewhere where we would be unlikely to see hordes of tourists, getting a contrived 'experience'.
I understand that Happy Days is set many years ago and such places may not exist anymore (unless contrived) and would be happy to visit a diner that is simply frequented by local New Yorkers 'in the know'. I am particularly referring to breakfast.
We will be staying at the Grand Hyatt, but would be happy to travel further afield.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
