Architectural Concept

Taking his cues from the client, lead designer Josh Nathanson, envisioned Skylark as the next generation in Diner design. While taking inspiration from the jet-age of the 1960’s he was careful not to simply replicate past architecture.

Instead, he chose bold design elements evocative of mid-century airports that could translate into a fun and functional restaurant. The exterior, with it’s large buttresses supporting a wing-shaped awning becomes an iconic landmark in the New Jersey landscape. The interior is inviting with brightly colored  tiles, bold fabrics, and sleek seating. The lighting too adds plenty of visual interest. Custom chrome fixtures are suspended alongside colorful, space aged shaped pendants.

Operational Concept

Skylark Fine Diner and Lounge, with futuristic and retro murals, draws its design inspiration from the dawn of commercial jet travel in the late 60’s and 70’s. This concept, the renovation of the famous New Jersey diner, combines a remarkably high level of culinary and service excellence, with the energy and excitement of plasma screens, dynamic lighting and great music. Simply put, it’s the place to be for outstanding food served by an amazing staff in a stimulating and entertaining atmosphere. Uniquely, Skylark transitions its ambiance throughout the day as smoothly as the changing of the seasons. With its light colors and floor to ceiling windows Skylark is a perfect setting for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert.

Usually, when I 'm in Edison, it's for a specific purpose and it's not dinner. However, I've been here a few times when I had to wait for my car to get serviced. More high-end than your typical diner and much better than the other places up and down the Edison/Metuchen Route 1 corridor. The deli sandwiches were very tasty and the ambiance was retro- art deco chic.
Skylark's retro appearance and unique meal items make this diner stand out in central jersey. It is one of my favorite spots for brunch and the service is always exceptional. There is also a "lounge" portion of the restaurant which has a bar and tvs surrounding the area, which provides customers with fun entertainment. For breakfast, I recommend either the Huevos Rancheros or Blueberry Stuffed French Toast. For lunch, I recommend the Cuban Sandwich or Argentine Baguette. For dinner, I recommend the shrimp and scallops (which was written about in the NY times) or the 5 spice salmon. Great, great place with a friendly staff and super yummy food!!
First diner I remember going to as a kid. Overall pretty good, if generic, food. Never had better orange juice anywhere though, its expensive though, fair warning
I really enjoy this diner because of the different experience that you get when eating here. The food is typical delicious diner food that will definitely make you full. Great Late Night Snack!
