7. Colonnade Diner

Since it was built in 1975, Colonnade Diner, on 2001 Hylan Blvd., has served Staten Island’s for over forty years. At the time, the United States was preparing for a Bicentennial celebration and Colonnade Diner – once nicknamed “The Disco Diner” in reference to Hylan Boulevard’s many clubs and discos – became one of the first mega diners on Staten Island. Late nighters would often drop by for a meal or continue their party with the jukebox. Today, this 24-hour “veteran option” is still run by the Platis family.
