Silver Lining Diner Southampton, New York


A new nexus for the East End, Silver Lining Diner is the epitome to which every great American diner has always aspired: an egalitarian place with friendly, welcoming and optimistic service where guests can have a well-crafted and delicious yet unpretentious meal whatever the occasion.

Occupying an iconic diner space, circa 1957, on Montauk Highway in Southampton, the 270-seat restaurant has been divided into a number of intimate spaces with a variety of seating options including booths, coffee counter and bar seating, square and round tables, banquettes, a communal table and an outdoor patio. The coffee section of the bar in the main dining room is shaped as a horseshoe, which is intended to induce communication and closeness among diners.

JBI’s design honors the classic American diner ethos without feeling retro or vintage. A crisp, light, and happy color palate of sunshine yellow, warm whites, stainless steel, and light hued woods allows the various spaces feel simultaneously contemporary, light and optimistic.

The moniker, Silver Lining Diner, is a reference to the “Sunshine Highway”, the original name of Montauk Highway
