Barracks mess hall gets remodeled

25 Mar 2014 | Cpl. Dan Hosack

The mess hall at Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., was recently remodeled and had its grand re-opening March 24.
Some of the changes to the mess hall include LED screen menus, a fusion bar and updated decorations.
Previously, the mess hall had only two lines - one serving fast food and the other serving traditional entrees.
“Our goal was to improve food quality and get a new look,” said Cpl. Jassiel Calderon, mess hall Marine at the Barracks. “We have far exceeded that goal gauging the positive feedback from the Marines.”
Marines who ate at the new mess hall were encouraged to fill out comment cards to evaluate the changes.
“The food is good and there is great variety,” said Lance Cpl. Matthew Howell. “The ambiance has definitely changed for the better.”
