Capitol Hill finally has a place to eat that is open all day and all night (besides the iconic but less-than-delicious IHOP). This 24-hour diner in the former space of Basic Plumbing (the windowless, louche gay bathhouse on 10th and Pike) promises "the stiffest drinks on the Hill" (stiffest-er than the Crescent?! Lord help us) and "no pretentious deconstructed anything, just real food for real people at great prices." The atmosphere is retro-Twin-Peaks-y, and there is pie.
