After months of preparation, Romanda’s is open for business. The farm-to table restaurant, located at 406 E. Fourth, St., opened Saturday evening in what was once Cazuelas. Rob Stevens, executive chef of Marion’s newest restaurant is excited for many reasons. Not only does he feel the nervous excitement of opening a brand new restaurant, but he also realizes the high expectations his eatery is facing.

Washington D.C. is all a buzz about the State of the Union, the discussion at every coffee shop, restaurant, Uber ride and such. Everyone asking, “Will you be watching?” and I got to say, “I’ll be attending the State of the Union tonight.” Amazed. Honored. Appreciative. Streets began to close, security details on every street corner from the Capital and nearly seven blocks in radius. Helicopters swarmed the city the entire day. I decided that the grim notion and possibility of ‘Designated Survivor’ could fall into an obscure part of my brain and was no longer a concern of mine. I will be sitting in the most protected place in the entire world.
