Order up! 8 Thanksgiving diner meals around Brooklyn

How is it that in this era of the foodie, the simple diner survives? Is it the booth seating? Maybe. Reasonable prices also help the cause, as do simple, non-involved options across the food spectrum. A diner also lacks pretension and any illusion that you, the customer, are always right, no matter how much of a jerk you are. If the waitress needs to tell your drunk table to shut up because she can’t hear the order she’s trying to take, she’ll do that, and you’ll shut up. So if you happen to find yourself in Brooklyn on Turkey Day, why not sit at the formica counter of one of these eight diners offering Thanksgiving meals?
