THANKS FOR THE NICE article on Little Tavern “Restaurants” (“Places That Are Gone,” 11/10). I noticed that you neglected to picture the one at Cordell Avenue in Bethesda. I can remember that after my friend Jeff Kreyssig and I would attend a show at the Psyche Delly (there’s a story waiting to be written), he would insist on stopping for some burgers at Club LT up the street (the only place open at 1:30 a.m.). And he got sick every time! Memories.
DAVE NUTTYCOMBE REPLIES: The top photo on Page 3 was of the Bethesda Little Tavern, as is the wider view printed below. It had become a Toddle House, though now it’s shuttered, the result of an apparent fire. But that was not the only dining option at 1:30 a.m. Had you and your weak-stomached friend ventured a few blocks south, you could have had a sit-down meal at the Tastee Diner on Woodmont Avenue. But that’s another story as well.
