Lunching and legislating

The Capitol Cafe, tucked away in the basement of Arkansas’ Statehouse, is a quiet, unassuming dining nook, writes Linda S. Caillouet in Tuesday’s Style section. The low-key atmosphere could easily lead one to believe it’s just an everyday, ordinary cafeteria.

From its beige tile floors to the green and wood paneled walls, this place is understated with only the subtlest of accents — framed black and white photographs of locales around the Capitol and a frosted glass divider between the serving and dining areas, etched with images of the Capitol’s dome.

But there is no telling how much shaping of our state’s past, present and future has taken place here, support garnered with a handshake or just the pass of the salt and pepper between bites of a generous plate full of chicken-fried chicken, great Northern beans, collard greens and cornbread.
