I'm not sure I would get rid of it. It's gives the photo a certain character.

...but if it is what you're looking for it could probably be achieved with dehazing. Found this on YouTube : https://www.youtube....h?v=2Z3t3KR8ZvM

 

I did this in PSE

My guess is you have blown out any useful detail outside through the window, for the type of result you want you need to use fill flash balanced to the out side, a learning curve i know but.

You should be able to dial back those hot spots with the adjustment brush.

I doubt it.

The closer it is to 250 or 255, a grey tone will
be generated since no information is available.

Solution:
protect the whites at all costs prior to SR!

Sometime gray is preferable to blown out white. I'm only suggesting that it should be possible to make those areas less distracting. There's nothing there to recover so further editing may or may not improve the aesthetics.

If I may disagreeā€¦ Blown out whites are seen by all going to
brighter environments and, even temporarily, considered as
"natural", annoying but natural.

 

A cutout replacement is a better solution than silver grey tone.

we just wished when they set it up. did better job hiding all brightness. but could not since had to set up on fly for her going away party and birthday where people would come in to see her give tips. since leaving after being there for long time. we want to cover window up with sheet but could not since had to see out side bar behind window to see who went outside or any other issue. i tried other spots to shoot but got way more bright light from moving. could put on 24-70mm lens but that F4 want to use prime for picture. also left 35mm at home too. i am still learn and love fact learn a lot. if brought my soft box softbox diffuser could got different shots. but when its on fly and only place to set in restaurant. we work with what we had. also with her taking pictures always at last moment call or her friend to take photo.

For future, pick a different background...it looks like if you had moved to your right a step or two, you could have had a wall as a background.

 

As it is, you might try adjusting the highlights slider to try and reduce the glare even if it won't likely totally eliminate the glare...That is definitely a tool you will need to get comfortable with if you are shooting outdoor action...

I have no clue about the newer versions of Photoshop but on my CS5 there is a slider for Recovery.  On over blown windows like that on the Raw/DNG files it dials it down the blown out area so that you can somewhat see the outside items.  Its not a perfect result but its better than all white glare. Maybe the guys who use the newer versions can chime in as to the current versions of PS ability to do this.

Whatever version of anything, Irwin, there is no
data to recover so no chance but replacement.

Ok Irwin, I understand where the misunderstanding is.

 

High or Hot keys defines your example: values between 235~250/255.

Burnt is containing almost no information: 245+ and will generate weird greys.

Blown contains NO info whatsoever: 255/255, there is nothing to recoverā€¦ pure white.

 

In the OP picture, the windows are pure white = blown.
