From September 30 to October 12, Nate’s Place Resturant, closed down to do some updating in its kitchen.
The restaurant is located at 8th Street and National Avenue, in the southern mansion of what is known as Lyons Twin Mansions.
What initiated the update was a $5,000 grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Pathways to a Healthy Kansas initiative.
“With that grant, we added a new commercial freezer, a refrigerator, a warming table, new linen and silverware,” Shawn O’Brien, manager of the restaurant, said.
“Nate and Bailey (Lyons, owners of the restaurant) invested in a new tile floor in the kitchen, new paint, took out old cabinets and invested in new prep tables,” O’Brien said.
The bathroom of the restaurant was also renovated, he said.
“It was an exciting two weeks,” O’Brien said.
At that time the Lyons hired restaurant consultants to help with efficiency in the restaurant, he said.
During this time also the evening menu changed, adding two new entrees.
Following are the newly updated menus for the different shifts.
