Empire Diner is a Chelsea landmark reimagined. Located in the heart of West Chelsea, the iconic Empire Diner has been a neighborhood and industry staple since 1976.
This landmarked building with its storied past is back and better than ever under the direction of Executive Chef Jestin Feggan and managing partner Stacy Pisone, both of Cafeteria, another Chelsea favorite for over 25 years.
Empire’s updated retro-modern design maintains the integrity and rich history of the original decor with a decidedly contemporary twist.
Classic American fare with thoughtfully refined ingredients take on traditional diner favorites. Expertly crafted cocktails served with nostalgic flair will have you returning to this neighborhood destination again and again.
