Louis' Restaurant Lives to Grill Again

The amber tile motif in the bathroom of Louis' Restaurant was the 1970s, every bit as much as the five-note theme of Close Encounters, Oscar Gamble's 'fro, or all the places Dirty Harry shot people that aren't there anymore.  

Well, the tile is gone. In order to abide by the Americans with Disabilities Act, a restroom must be five feet wide — and that tile, according to Louis' co-owner Tom Hontalas, would have rendered the commode half an inch too narrow. C'est la vie.
