MeMe's Diner is a neighborhood restaurant in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn serving dinner and brunch. We serve familiar food, prepared thoughtfully, in a space where everyone is welcome. We work from an international pantry (chili oil, fish sauce, and tahini) combined with farmer's market produce and bodega standards (Fritos, potato chips, and wasabi peas) to create distinctly American food.
Seating is first come, first served. Check us out on the Yelp App to see if there’s a wait, and if there is one, put your name on the waitlist. You can follow along to see how many tables are ahead of you, and we’ll notify you when your table is ready.
"It’s food meant not to impress you, only to bring you joy. The best part is, it does both."

"But perhaps what’s most memorable about MeMe’s Diner, especially for guests, is the immense appeal of the food and drink they serve. Named after Bill’s maternal grandmother, who married late and still drinks a Manhattan every day ('We impart her sassiness,' says Bill), their aim with the menu is 'accessible luxury, everyday indulgence.' This translates as comfort classics like meatloaf and mac and cheese, as well as entree salads topped with a Buffalo-style sliced chicken cutlet or perched on a crisp patty of fried noodles."
- Lukas Volger, "Serving Comfort," Jarry. 1/22/18
"It’s country food through and through on a menu larded with nostalgia (meatloaf, coconut cake, fluffer-nutters for brunch), but better than you ever had in the suburbs: strips of crunchy, craggy crusted chicken painted with Buffalo sauce and nubbins of bleu cheese served over a salad of greens and thinly sliced watermelon radish lightly dressed with not-too-rich Green Goddess."
