Downtown diner Werner's has House of Cards partially to thanks for its restoration. Though the restaurant "had been closed for 10 years or so," according to Arnold, "right about the time we decided we were interested [in shooting it], somebody had control of it and decided to reopen it. Their opening day was a little bit after we needed it, so we came in and did some cleaning and restoration. And then they opened about a month after we shot there. It's a great, classic, old-school, downtown diner."
