Waltz's Dining Car is a classic eatery located in New York City.


Winston Zeddemore agreed to meet again with Erik, Luis, and Dan, who were writing a book on the Ghostbusters. The meeting took place at Waltz's Dining Car. As he ate his slice of blueberry pie, he reminded them to call him "Winston" instead of "Mr. Zeddemore" then noticed Dan wasn't there. Erik and Luis went with saying he was on vacation then revealed the editor wanted Erik to research the Scoleri Brothers case. Winston recalled he wasn't in the court room when that bust went down but Erik brought up eyewitnesses noting his presence and insisted he just wanted to get the accounts straight for the fans. Winston conceded and told them his version of the events. They were disappointed that Winston simply trapped a third ghost that manifested that day. Winston thanked them for the pie and departed for another appointment. Erik fretted about making a whole story arc about it. Luis again suggested adding in a Chupacabras, to Erik's annoyance.
