The Statler’s Overeasy Has the Soul of a Diner and the Ambition of a Chef
With Overeasy, The Statler laid a golden egg. They had the good sense to hire Graham Dodds, whose chef’s touches had been denied us since Wayward Sons closed last year. Now he’s back in the kitchen, sending out perfect omelets: clouds of eggs and Parmesan that have formed a spiritual pact with finely chopped chives. His are proper French-style omelets, creamy inside, the fluffy hull a smooth canary yellow without a hint of browning, as though they’ve somehow levitated out of the pan.

Taking cues from both midcentury modern design and present-day aesthetics, the Statler's redesign is certainly eye catching. Take a stroll through the marbled lobby to find downtown's hottest new breakfast spot, Overeasy. Once you try these biscuits, you'll see what all the buzz is about.
