The Nighthawk Diner, founded by Alistair,
a young chef with a background in French fine dining. 

Al has been borderline-obsessed with American culture since he was raised feeling as though Chevy Chase was his father and Sesame Street was just a suburb over.

With years spent in hatted Sydney restaurants and traveling throughout North America, Al developed a serious love for American cuisine and more importantly, American dining culture.

Meet the trucks

The 1959 International ‘Harvester’s Scout’, or as she prefers to be addressed, ‘Queen Latifa’, is at the front of the list because she is just that, the Queen.  She has more time off than us and has her big shiny behind tended to more than any member of royalty could ever wish for.

And our name? 
Derived from a quintessentially American oil painting by Edward Hopper called ‘Nighthawks’, a portrait of a late night downtown American diner. A place where anyone could take off their hat and coat and be welcomed with good old-fashioned American hospitality, be well-fed and not pay an arm and a leg for it.
