Painting of Dubrow's

"Dubrow's Cafeteria" by Ivan Koota. Acrylic/canvas, 1993

Here's what he says: "At one time, there were several Dubrow's cafeterias in the city but "ours" was located on the corner of King's Highway and E.16th. The prices were right and the choices astonishing, especially the sliced meat sandwiches and the desserts. And following Sunday lunch, we often went to a movie at either the Avalon or the Kingsway. And it made no difference if you came in the middle of the film, you just stayed on to see it again."

I love this painting. It is close to the dim memory of a memory I have of my grandfather's restaurants.
