Sam's No. 3 — the flagship in an eighty-year-old restaurant empire — finally closed in 1969, but the Armatas family returned the diner to its original downtown home (or, more accurately, right next door) in 2004. The menu is voluminous, with eight pages crammed with specials and sides and extras. Although the core offerings remain the Coney Island favorites that made Sam's reputation back in the 1920s, there are also skillet breakfasts, burgers, breakfast burritos and other Mexican grub.
