When I was a kid, I used to go to Janet Hogan’s diner, which was along Route 59 where the Palisades Center is now. (Am I showing my age? I used to go bowling in those lanes, too….) Anyway, I was getting my oil changed the other day and was looking for a nice place to pass a half hour with my crossword puzzle. Enter Hogans, which is in the spot FKA the Wooden Indian in Nyack. (I suppose I really AM showing my age now.)
I decided on something else that reminded me of my childhood; a pastrami sandwich with Swiss cheese and mustard dressing. My play on a Reuben, I guess:
It really hit the spot. And you can’t really tell from this photo, but there are lots of regulars at the counter, and families and grandparents at the booths.
