Promised for 2 Years, ‘Diller’ Finally Brings its Fried Pickles to Grand Street
Killer diller is dressed to the hilt…
Indeed, the name has been in Broadway-style lights on Grand Street since last fall. And now, Diller is finally opening.
The new fried pickles joint had been waiting what seemed like an eternity for the final Con Edison inspections at 357 Grand Street. But the many months of delays are now history. The tiny Pickle Guys sidecar opens for business on Thursday at 12:30pm.
As previously reported, Diller is a counter-style snack shop where the Pickle Guys’ fried pickle is star. The original idea conceived in 2016 also paired kosher burgers, and potentially a fish option, but those plans were replaced instead with the Beyond Burger. (Full menu is below.) The Pickle Guys initially expected the Diller debut in May 2017.
In the meantime, ownership is simultaneously applying to the State Liquor Authority for a beer-wine license at this location. Since the business previously agreed to CB3’s standard stipulations, their application was fast-tracked to approval at the committee level.
Diller will operate between 10am and midnight, seven days a week.
