This is the bathroom at Mojave, a “Mexican” restaurant in Astoria under the Ditmars Stop on the N/W line. It’s overpriced and the food isn’t great but they have a full cocktails menu.
Now for the bathrooms! Clean, the sink was wet, and the feng shui of the layout made the room seem small and clinical, so I wasn’t about to spend a lot of time chillin’ in there to think, primp or just relax from the noise of the restaurant. But, the sink was interesting: it was a small half spherical stainless steel bowl recessed into the side of the counter. Just big enough for two little hands to wash themselves. I loved that asymmetry of the counter, but the perfection of the bowl of the sink. There was a label on the trash – if you have to label it, you’ve selected the wrong receptacle! The paper towel “dispenser” was a throwaway, which was sad considering how awesome the sink was, but all in all, it was clean and stocked, and a nice reprieve from the painful hip-ness of the restaurant, even if just for a moment.
