I haven't been down in the area in a little while, but the Miss Syracuse Diner has apparently reopened after closing for a short period of time in October and November.
No details yet on its hours or if anything has changed from my initial review, but I do have some suggestions on what could be changed...
- Stay open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays. Give the Armory and Hanover Square crowds an excuse to stay Downtown.
- I think the exterior could use more neon or lighting. No need to add anything overly tacky - especially with City Hall right there, but right now the diner is a bit inconspicuous.
- Change the menu. Cater towards lunch crowd with wraps, sandwiches, and soups and cater towards the late night crowd with a Denny's-esque style menu.
- Put a Garbage Plate on the menu (or maybe introduce a Syracuse version with Grandma Brown's, Hofmann hot dogs or Gianelli Sausage).
