Cloned out

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

It was a popular among the high, the mighty and commoners alike.

This eatery was essentially nameless (there was no sign board) – besides being a casual diner and hangout.  It was also one of the first to have a visually open kitchen and a clear float-glass door for entrance. The overall effect was an open invitation to one and all. Eventually it became part of the local fabric – either you knew about it or you did not.

By 2000 the town had a dozen copy-cat restaurants each claiming to be the original.

It opened in 1937 closed down in 2006.

Words ~ 100

  1. Almost 70 year run… pretty darn good, I say.
    We actually have a diner in Montreal called Wilensky’s (if you saw the movie “The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, it’s in there!) that is celebrating their 85th anniversary this year…. same sandwich, nothing has changed. Same family has owned it since day 1

  2. We had a “No-Name” bar in the town where I worked for 25 years. It also had no sign, but the parking lot was always full of cars–probably because of the outstanding hamburgers and great selection of beers 🙂

I love arguments
