T.C. Boyle’s short story ‘The Women’s Restaurant’ (first published in Penthouse Magazine in 1977) is based on the restaurant ‘Grace and Rubie’s’, a women-only establishment that once existed on North Linn Street in Iowa City’s Northside. It tells the story of a man determined to eat there, despite its strictly female reputation.
