10 Fictional Restaurants Where I’d Like to Eat

I’m a sucker for restaurants – diners, coffee houses, burger joints, fine-dining ones – you name it. I’ve got the worst craving habits too. Every time I’m watching a movie or a TV show and there’s a restaurant scene, I start craving whatever they’re having. Unfortunately, I can’t just pick up and go because most of the restaurants we see in movies and TV are fictional.

Then there are other times when the place has nothing to do with the food, and yet you still want to be there. The characters just seem to be having the greatest time chatting and sipping their drinks. If only those restaurants could exist in the real world. Here’s my list of the 10 Fictional Restaurants I Want to Eat At.

Jack Rabbit Slim’s in Pulp Fiction

I mean, wouldn’t you want to know what a $5 milkshake tastes like?

Vincent’s Restaurant in Manhattan Murder Mystery

There are so many restaurants featured in Woody Allen’s totally understated Manhattan Murder Mystery (this is one of my favorite all-time films, watch it if you haven’t). But Vincent’s in New Jersey was my top choice, if only for the environment. Don’t you see the smiles on their faces? They look like they’re having a ball.

Wowsville in Ghost World

“It’s like the Taj Mahal of fake 50’s diners.”

Joe’s Pie Diner in Waitress

There’s a scene in Waitress where Old Joe (Andy Griffith) describes Jenna’s Special Chocolate Oasis Pie as a problem-solver: “Could solve all the problems of the world, that pie.” Oh the things I’d do to have a slice of that deliciously-described pie.

Double R Diner in Twin Peaks

I would give myself the gift of a good old cup of Joe and a slice of their tasty cherry pie.

Fung Wah in Sex and the City

I’d never want to go to Fung Wah on a date. Word is, it’s where men take women they don’t want to be seen with. But their greasy Chinese food looks finger licking good.

Juliet’s in An Education

All I gotta say is, fancy never looked so good.

The Hukilau Cafe in 50 first dates

Who wouldn’t want to go to a restaurant where they whole waiting staff goes out of their way to lie to you about what day it is? They do this every day!

Sal’s Famous in Do The Right Thing

I mean, it’s Sal’s FAMOUS pizza.

The Grand Central Oyster Bar in Mad Men

To me, this is one of the most memorable dinner scenes of Mad Men. Who could forget the time Roger Sterling threw up? Roger and Don make those oysters look sinfully mouthwatering, wouldn’t you agree?
