That is typical for a restaurant. Designers don't want to make room for the employees in the back so you see them up front or they shove a small table in a corner.

You saw that piece of grey wall paper behind all of the posters, shelf and table? The one with the little white on black label at the top?

It was a VENT line.

Note the 2" size.

Vents run ~ 1.5" to 2" -- dark water is spec'd at 3" with practically no exceptions.

( You'll see such runs in marine applications -- the ones in small boats that demand that you throw soiled paper into the bucket -- the pipes can't clear it. )

Looks more like a central vacuum line to me.

BTW, the plumbing code allows 1 1/2" for most sink drains, 2" for kitchen sinks, showers and laundry.

I can't say for certain but it doesn't look like a central vac pipe. There's a 3" pipe to the right of the panel in the back ground that is also white.

You are correct about the plumbing code though. I've never heard of having to use a 3" drain for a sink because someone might throw toilet paper down the sink.
