The interviews and vintage clips are a vivid record of an extraordinary era in the city's history.

When Julianne Moore enthuses about the fact that kids got crayons with their meals, you have to wonder if a short film might have suited this story better.

May 20, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It is a touching, elegiac tale of the rise (and some would say fall) of a colorful New York neighborhood under the relentless march of gentrification.

May 19, 2011 | Rating: 4/5

A briskly paced, unself-consciously edited celebration that matches the giddy vibe of its namesake.

A unique, cherished New York restaurant and its equally singular owner are celebrated in this affectionate documentary.

David Sigal's documentary may not quite manage to canonize the diner, at least not to flyover country, but it sure makes it sound like a good meal and a great time.
