Fountainbleau Diner (Piscataway)
Last week, the owner of New Jersey Isn’t Boring, and I met up at the Fountainbleau Diner in Piscataway Township, NJ. The Fountainbleau Diner Restaurant is located in South Plainfield. It was one that neither of us had been too, so it made sense. She is also going to every diner in New Jersey but been to quite a few more. We got to the FountainBleau Diner on a weekday for lunch, and it was moderately busy but not overwhelming.
Fountainbleau Diner Atmosphere: A
The Fountainbleau Diner diner itself has a cobblestone exterior, and the interior is old school with plenty of mirrors. There were a lot of mirrors, and it made the space appear bigger. It felt like the “What Not to Wear 360 Mirror,” but it was cool.
The Fountainbleau Diner was clean and nice.
Fountainbleau Diner Service: A
The waitress at the Fountainbleau Diner was friendly and funny. Any waitress that cracks a few jokes is a winner in my books. You can’t beat that, and she brought plenty of refills. Our food came out quickly, and I have no complaints.
Fountainbleau Diner Coffee: B
There was nothing unusual or unique about the Fountainbleau Diner, but it wasn’t bad either. I haven’t had any amazing coffee lately, but I haven’t had bad coffee either. I enjoyed the coffee, and there was a good amount of whipped cream.
Foutainbleau Diner Food: A
The Fountainbleau diner menu has several options, but it’s not overwhelming. The Fountainbleau Diner has a smaller menu with “only” 4 pages. I’ve been to some diners with 10-15 filled pages.
What is overwhelming is the amount of lunch specials they have for $8.51. It took me a few minutes to decide what I wanted. I decided to go for the Chicken Souvlaki. I had ordered it a few weeks Sage Diner, and I liked it. It might be one of my new favorite lunch staples.
The special came with soup, and I decided to order a salad instead of fries. Lentil soup is one of my favorite soups, and it was thick and full of lentils. It had huge chunks of celery, and I liked it.
The chicken Souvlaki at the Fountainbleau Diner was much different than the previous diner. It was stuffed with tzatziki sauce, lettuce, grilled chicken and onions. It wasn’t too greasy, and I enjoyed it. While I forgot to
While I forgot to photo of the salad, it was a typical side salad. There was nothing unusual. Next time I think I’ll order a greek salad too. Even ordering a full Greek salad, two meals would be cheaper than a single meal at several other diners.
Fountainbleau Diner Cost: $
This was one of my cheapest meals to date. For my entire meal, including the coffee and side salad upgrade, it was $10.
Overall/Would I come back to the Fountainbleau Diner (Piscataway)?
