2018 Winner: My Diner


This Lower End fixture fell to the gentrification axe a couple of years ago, only to resurface in 2018 inside a big apartment building at an old South Boston distillery. Thanks to its odd second-story location, the reborn My Diner has some nice waterfront views and still slings American breakfast and lunch staples like giant omelets and house-roasted turkey dinners at popular prices. It’s a welcome old-timey holdover from an iteration of Southie that’s rapidly disappearing.
