    The Hotel Quincy Grill, closed since January for extensive remodeling, will reopen this evening. An entirely new kitchen has been installed in the brick house formerly used for storage. This was connected by a new room to the main hotel building. A new cold room in the basement will be kept at temperatures of zero degrees allowing the restaurant to serve oysters in the middle of summer.
