La Ter­raza gets a facelift

Starkville Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By SARAH RAINES life@starkvilledai­

Ren­o­va­tions are un­der­way at La Ter­raza, the res­tau­rant on Eck­ford Drive which serves Mex­i­can cui­sine, and man­ager Elvira Chavez said she hopes the ren­o­va­tions will help the res­tau­rant bet­ter serve the peo­ple of Starkville.

La Ter­raza is still open while ren­o­va­tions are be­ing done to the front of the build­ing and the pa­tio. The first or­der of busi­ness was to fix some dam­age done to the roof by a tor­nado that passed through a few years ago. Other ren­o­va­tions in­clude ex­pand­ing the pa­tio to ac­com­mo­date more cus­tomers and adding more roof cov­er­age to out­side ar­eas.

“We’re do­ing all this be­cause we want a bet­ter pre­sen­ta­tion for the res­tau­rant and for the ser­vice, so peo­ple can feel like they are wel­come and like they are in a nice place,” Chavez said. “I want it to look even bet­ter than it does now.”

The style of La Ter­raza is fash­ioned af­ter tra­di­tional ter­races found in large houses in Mex­ico. A new arch is be­ing added to the face of the build­ing to em­pha­size the theme, which is al­ready found through­out the de­sign on the inside of the build­ing.

“Our mis­sion is to ap­pre­ci­ate the fam­i­lies and the young peo­ple,” Chavez said

Chavez said the new ex­pan­sion and the changes should re­sult in a cleaner, more com­fort­able set­ting with a bet­ter de­sign. Ren­o­va­tions will take a few more weeks, but the res­tau­rant’s hours are un­af­fected by the con­struc­tion.
