It's out with the old and in with the new at the Missouri Capitol this month. Not only are lawmakers coming and going, but a new cafeteria opened in the basement of the building Jan. 3.
The cafeteria, previously the Hawthorne Room, has taken on a new name, The Capitol Grill. It's managed by the Peachtree Catering and Banquet Center, based out of Columbia, and is open weekdays from 7 a.m.-4 p.m.
The renovation cost an estimated $360,000-$480,000, according to the renovation project manual.
