Gone is Tony’s Pizza on the prominent corner of River Valley Road, in its place, One Night Only, a new concept run by the people behind Muchachos and The Daily Cut. This modest unpretentious diner is rather bland in appearances. Muted blues, beige and greys make it unlike the brightly coloured kitsch American style diners that you may expect. But we were pleased with the burger they served up – No Frills Cheeseburger ($13.50/18 for single/double patty) sees a perfectly cooked juicy patty, lettuce, tomato, and cheese (albeit processed) in a toasted soft brioche bun with fries. Also on the menu, Buttermilk Fried Chicken ($16.50/19.50) and Chicken Fried Steak ($21) the latter having confusingly no chicken, just breaded steak which was a little too chewy for us. It was served with a choice of two sides. We went for the delightfully large crispy onion rings and a tasty sweet tangy red coleslaw – both very satisfying. American classics of Lobster Roll. Maryland Crab Cakes, and All Day Build Your Own Breakfasts (including eggs your way, bacon, smashed avocado, hash browns, corned beef hash and classic buttermilk pancakes) can be found too. Do note that the diner only opens from lunch on weekdays and at 9am weekends.
