Show your tots a world before iPods, when LPs and 45s ruled. The thoroughly modern menu offers breakfast all day, diner classics like fried chicken and meatloaf, and Asian fusion fare. Peruse the record-sleeve menu, then gaze around at decor that evokes decades past (disco balls, Elvis figurines). Be sure to stop by the unisex dressing rooms (er, restrooms) and make your choice based on the celeb name plate that appeals most.
