Hotel Lafayette - Table of Contents

Restaurant  - (Marquis de) Lafayette Hotel

"The Pan American Grill & Brewery's front dining area originally served as the hotel's outer dining room. The mezzanine was added in the 1940s when the dining room was converted into a luncheonette. During the 2011-12 restoration, the mezzanine was extended and a curved front was added.

"This room has beautiful cornices featuring carved cartouches. The plaster and wood was fully restored in this area making it one of the most detailed in the hotel. The beams and ceilings that look like rich, deep-grained wood are actually plaster that has been painstakingly created and hand painted." - Jacqueline Albarella, The Hotel Lafayette : Restoring Louise Bethune's Masterpiece, Keller Bros. & Miller, p.63
