Spotted: Mr. Chow Likeness in Izakaya Window

New, 2 comments

Spurred on by a tipster's offhand comment that one of the baseball player portraits gracing the windows of O Izakaya Lounge bears a striking resemblance to one Michael Chow of Mr. Chow restaurant fame, the Eater Investigative Team was dispatched to the Hotel Kabuki immediately. Indeed, a bispectacled, Harry Potter-esque ballplayer with a quiet air of dignity is plastered on the window. Sure there's a bit of an ethnicity discrepancy, but the resemblance is certainly there, right? A silly coincidence? Or a respectful homage to a famous restaurateur?
