The future of American cuisine is also represented by the unique, seasonal creations of executive chef and co-owner, Ype (Eeep-uh) Von Hengst. His signature steak, chicken, fish entrees remain a 30-year staple of the Silver Diner’s hearty menu, along with arguably one of the best burgers on or off the beltway.
Residents get to indulge in the richest of classic American roadside diner comfort with items such as the bacon bleu burger and the Black Angus meatloaf, whenever they like, without going too far from home.
The Silver Diner refers to its menu as “flexitarian”, as in they offer tasty ways to stay healthy by making available various substitution offerings like gluten-free options for buns, etc. Plus, there are an array of delicious choices from their “Healthier Selections” menu.
By the way, the light menu is no mere house salad to pair with your burger or steak. In fact, heart healthy entrees like their Baja fish tacos or their mango vegetarian stir fry might tempt you to reconsider any burger munching plans you arrived with. Either way, you can expect to eat some of the happiest food in town.
Chef Ype has been delivering his own unique spin on Americana, along with restaurant co-founder Bob Giaimo since 1989. The Silver Diner combines the business duo’s love for the classic American diner and their passion for serving unique, healthy, locally sourced meals that meet today’s diverse lifestyles and tastes.
Plus, they promote healthy living and eating habits for the children of their patrons as well, by offering a robust kid’s menu and kid’s night events.
You will find their prices to be reasonable as well, especially given the quality of the locally sourced ingredients, and the labor of love that keeps the Silver Diner going after three decades.
You can salivate for yourself here, with a video from the diner’s Youtube channel.
