TENAFLY, N.J. -- Who can resist the cozy booth of a diner? If you’re not drawn in by the often retro ambiance, you’re no doubt driven by the menu, mammoth undertakings filled with pages and pages of comfort food, not to mention unlimited cups of coffee.

You picked five of the top diners in Bergen County as part of our continuing DVlicious series. All are being profiled this week with the winner selected at the end of the month. Read on ... and vote.

Tenafly Diner, 16 W. Railroad Ave., Tenafly, (201) 567-5522

Been Around Since: The diner opened in 1927 and was bought by Owner Michael Kontolios in 2001.

Known For: Healthy options. The diner serves only grass-fed beef and steaks, and organic produce."We believe it’s a better alternative to normal corn-fed because cows aren't not fed antibiotics," said Kontolios. "It's all 100% organic."

Also stick around for brunch — think French toast tiramisu tower paired with mac & cheese squares; gourmet fries — sweet potato or marinara with mozzarella; and of course, New York cheesecake… all big enough to be lunch again tomorrow.

Behind the Scenes: Lots of celebrities pop in here including Chris Rock, Bill Murray, Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia and Alpine's Tracy Morgan, who usually opts for delivery.

Voting ends Monday, Jan. 25 at 4 p.m. You can vote multiple times, though only once a day.
