I did this for a book cover. Because I hope to put photographed people in this scene, this may not be the final render, but everything is there that shows.
Because it’s so render unfriendly, I sent it to McNeel for examination.
This was rendered at 4k, with Cycles, using 15,000 samples, and 32 bounces. Some of the materials such as the asphalt and the bricks have 4096 sized textures. Others like the yellow barrier are smaller, given their distance from the camera. The image has 10% contrast enhancement, for mood. The background will need to be replaced. The black paint gloss took quite a few tries to get it as close as this. The bushed stainless has been and always will be a work in progress.
Some 19 years ago, I used this same kind of diner in a free video game level pack.
Thank you Nathan for the surface rendering.
