Patrons of this small diner, a 1946 Worcester lunch car, enjoy its eclectic menu, as well as the owners’ deli and specialty food store next door. It has a unique location: perched on steel stilts alongside elevated Bridge Street. Its recipes and lore are chronicled in “A1 Diner: Real Food, Recipes & Recollections” by Sarah Rolph (Tilbury House, 2006,; $20).
