The coffee continues to flow as EJ’s Luncheonette celebrates its 20th anniversary. EJ’s is known to have the best breakfast on the upper east side of New York. Crowds have been flocking to EJ’s Luncheonette since 1990 when EJ’s opened its first location on Amsterdam Avenue.
Recognized since the nineties as New York City’s best brunch spot, EJ’s has grown to be a New York City Upper East Side Landmark that is visited by both locals and tourists from all over the world.
EJ’s has earned such accolades: New York City’s Best Milk Shakes, Best Egg Creams, Best Breakfast and most notably, New York City’s Best Diner. Serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, EJ’s reinvented the comfort food Blue Plate specials of the 1940’s and 1950’s. The Chefs have re-created recipes that were the staples of” Home Cooked Meals”. Even more amazing is that the Blue Plate Specials menu changes everyday. EJ’s features Lunch and Dinner menus that feature comfort food favorites for everyone.
The restaurant was designed by Peter Niemitz and was built to personify the diners of the 1940's. Memorabilia line the walls with throw back advertisements of long extinct sodas, starlets of bygone eras, famous players from the New York Yankees and vintage photographs of soda jerks from luncheonettes that once existed throughout New York City. Locals and tourists thrive on dining in an authentic New York City diner, which is why EJ’s Luncheonette has become a New York City "must visit" landmark destination.
