    Smile a roadside diner/restaurant

    Since we were very hungry, we stopped at a roadside diner/restaurant to grab a bite.



    Do diner and restaurant have the same referent in the above sample? Thanks.

    I'd say that neither of them have a referent, A, but if you mean "do they say/refer to the same thing?", then yes, basically they do.
