One of our favourite places to eat in Queens, New York is the Neptune Diner. We have always been treated very well by the hostess who greets you when you enter the restaurant. The restaurant itself is nestled under the elevated Astoria Blvd. subway station and along with regular diner fare it specializes in Greek cuisine. It is open 24 hours a day so it is always there when you need it.
If you stay on Astoria Blvd. heading east past the diner, you will find yourself headed towards the Robert F Kennedy Bridge or more commonly known as the Triborough Bridge. It was called the Triborough because it connects the three boroughs of Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan.
On the opposite side of Astoria Blvd. stands a statue of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus that was placed there in 1941. The Neptune Diner, despite serving Greek food is also Italian based. It is named after the Roman god Neptune who is the Italian version of Poseidon (God of the Sea).
After enjoying our meal at Neptune we say our goodbyes and it is just a short run from the front door and up the stairs to catch a subway into Manhattan for more New York City adventures. We know the diner will be waiting for us no matter how late we return.
