Food is “any nutritional substance that people eat or drink in order to maintain life and growth.” Food nourishes the body, mind and soul bringing families together; celebrating life; and savoring the taste buds. Every month is food month but this April is National Food Month, a celebrating what else? Food!
A monument or statue doesn’t constitute a historical destination alone. Restaurants too can be historical destinations. The Tastee Diner is a historical landmark in the Washington, D.C. area. One of the last original diners, the restaurant has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner since 1935.
According to the American Diner Museum, diners were built around wagon carts and railroad cars. Diners traditionally have a counter; stools; and a food preparation service along the back wall. Food is prepared the way one would prepare at home. One has to look into the pantry and the refrigerator to put together a meal.
The Tastee Diner prepares food the way you would prepare it at home. It’s neither fast food nor fusion food (a combination of culinary cuisines such as Mexican pizza and noodle burgers). It’s food that is simply prepared and eaten. The diner has specials on certain days of the week and breakfast is served all day.
Spring is the perfect season to spend one Sunday to have breakfast with family and friends. Breakfast is served on a plate; not in a Styrofoam tray or tissue paper. Tastee Diner maintains the tradition of a diner with affordable and abundant food. Why eat two breakfast sandwiches for the price of one when you can have a hearty meal for your money’s worth? Customers can sit back and enjoy what they love to eat without the guilt of fat and caloric intake.
A historical landmark in Montgomery County since 1994, The Tastee Diner is a piece of memorabilia of the food and service industry.
