Du-Par’s, the L.A.-based diner founded in 1938 at the Original Farmer’s Market, is bringing its pancakes and made-from-scratch pies to Bethesda, the Maryland suburb just outside of Washington D.C. Purchased in 2004 by a group that includes second-generation L.A. restaurateur “Biff” Naylor, the time-tested brand acquired chain ambitions in the last three years, branching out to locations that include an address in Oxnard and another on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. The most eastern-based Du-Par’s will appear this Saturday, sharing space with another iconic L.A. senior, 62-year-old Hamburger Hamlet, in Bethesda’s Georgetown Square, where the former’s breakfast menu will be found alongside Hamlet’s roster of burgers.
