CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Capitol Cuisine has been a familiar downtown restaurant for the last few years. It is now under new ownership and a slightly new name of, “Capitol Quisine.” As its new crew has gotten started over the last few weeks, they are looking forward to showing Cheyenne what the new restaurant has to offer.

“It’s been going great, we’ve been getting busier and busier. Fortunately, I have some good hires that I’ve been able to bring on that I’ve worked with in the past, as well as my family. So definitely keeping with that family vibe and feel that the old owner had,” said Owner, Peter Hastings.

Hastings said he initially came into the former “Capitol Cuisine” looking for a job, and came out a first time business owner.

“It’s definitely been a learning adventure along the way. Super excited to finally be open and being able to serve. I’ve been doing restaurants for 30 years and I’m just happy to finally have mine now.”

The amount of foot traffic hasn’t slowed in the restaurant since its reopening in late June.

“Its amazing, and I’m just thankful they’re coming in and hoping they’re staying happy with the wonderful food that we’re putting out.”

Being a first time business owner isn’t stopping Hastings from thinking about more opportunities he and his restaurant can offer in the future. Including a dinner menu that it will be offered beginning Friday July 23rd.

Capitol Quisine is located at 1720 Capitol Ave and is currently open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, Saturday’s 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The hours will be updated as it begins to offer a dinner menu in the coming weeks.
