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. 

Reservations

We don’t take reservations; just walk in and check with the host. If there’s a wait, you can put your name on the list and we’ll shoot you a text when we’re ready for you.

"It’s food meant not to impress you, only to bring you joy. The best part is, it does both."

- Hannah Goldfield, "MeMe’s Diner Is Brooklyn’s Delicious, Delightful (and “Very, Very Gay”) Place to Be," Tables for Two, The New Yorker. 2/12/2018

"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
