Greasy Spoon


Advised by Aki Nurosi

The first form of the American diner emerged in 1872 in Providence, Rhode Island.  Since then, it has evolved, been romanticized, and become a symbol of America. The Greasy Spoon celebrates the American diner and looks at how it has influenced  American culture – observing its unique characteristics, recognizable food, diner lingo, and individuals who have been inspired by it.
