At first glance, the tuxedos and slick decor might suggest this was a nightclub or cocktail lounge. But the plain water glasses, napkin dispenser and (apparent) sugar bowl instead marks this as a diner. Still, quite the stylish one.
I was surprised to see the Hot Shoppes name -- that's where we ate on a 1970 class trip to D.C. I haven't thought of it (or them) for years.
