For years we had just a single complaint with the Hominy Grill: The restored 19th-century barbershop was a beautiful setting, but it was much too small and cramped. There was no waiting area, and hungry diners formed long lines out on the sidewalk and jostled patrons at the front tables as they bustled in and out of the squeaky front door. This summer, Robert Stehling closed his restaurant down for a few weeks, and when it reopened, a second dining room had been added in a wing off to the left of the main building, and a new entryway — exterior walls clad in gleaming copper sheets — offered both a foyer and a hostess stand. And some much needed elbow room.
