Phoenicia Diner / by Nicholas Doyle

Phoenicia Diner is the kind of place the uninitiated might drive right past thinking "nah, I'm not in the mood for diner food." But that would be a terrible mistake... A terrible mistake I made on several occasions as I went for hikes in the catskills.

One day, probably while reading some food publication, I discovered that Phoenicia diner is actually a bit of a local food destination and serves incredible farm to table food at reasonable prices. It's a taste of the city but accessible to the locals. This is what I'm always searching for when I'm traveling.

Where is the best food, even in the middle of nowhere in the mountains?

Right here.
