O' Rourke's Diner - Middletown, Connecticut
O'Rourke's is owned and operated by Brian O'Rourke, chef extraordinaire. This is very possibly, the best place to eat breakfast on the planet! Lunch isn't bad either. Brian frequently greets customers with a sample of something he's been working on. The samples don't usually appear on the menu and if you ask him what it is, Brian will just reply; "It's good." And believe it; it is good, very, very good! I asked one of the veteran servers what Brian had given us. She hunched her shoulders and rolled her eyes. During a recent visit, I found a copy of Escoffier's Guide to French Cooking on a bookshelf in the entryway. I asked Brian if I could buy it. He told me that he had received the book as a present when he graduated from high school. He said it was precious to him. He said Escoffier's book was the foundation of all cooking. Then, he loaned the book to me with a promise of return. The man is generous to a fault. O'Rourke's was featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show on the Food Network. The restaurant consistently appears on every "best of" list and in books about diners.
