Sweet Monday news: Sharkey's takes over Capitol eateries

For all those times you've been stuck inside the Capitol during session or committee weeks and lamented having to eat at one of the two cafeterias, here's some good news to start your week: Lobbyist and restauranteur Jeff Sharkey takes over the 10th floor and lower-level eateries today. 

Sharkey, owner of Sharkey's Coffee & Bistro Downtown, got the contract to run the Capitol food spots and said today's will be a "temporary opening," following by a redesign of both locations. He said he plans to bring good coffee, good vibes and good food. His popular downtown eatery serves breakfast and lunch - sandwiches, salads, burgers, desserts, coffee, etc.

Here's hoping he brings to the Capitol those sinfully good cookies and muffins. A little something to sweeten those long days of committees and floor debates...

Cynical Idealist

While I eat regularly at Sharkey's in the High Point Center, I'm not sure sure about them taking over at the Capitol.

One of the blessings (though it could also be a curse) was that the food at the Capitol was more like "home cookin'" that my mama used to cook.

I'll reserve judgment until I get that first bite of food down and see if I can stomach it...


Andrew's provides the food for the legislature in their private dining rooms. They get things that aren't on the regular menu at Andrew's and it is very good. Wish we could be so lucky in the public cafeterias.
