Try Something New With Campus Dining this Fall
A fresh academic year is the perfect time to embrace the new – new experiences, new memories, and new flavors. This fall, Campus Dining invites you to live life in the fast lane with the new Vista Grande Express, sample small bites and paninis at the new Mingle + Nosh, celebrate plant-based and local ingredients at Health Shack, and upgrade your eats with a new Premium Meal Experience.
Vista Grande Express
Vista Grande Express delivers high value dining that’s easy on your wallet and the earth. Choose either a small or large reusable container and pick from a wide selection of items in a self-serve fashion. With a separate breakfast and lunch/dinner menu that rotates weekly, visitors can load up their container with as much as will fit with the lid closed, or as little as they want, and pay a flat rate.
With the reusable containers, Vista Grande Express will spare 500,000+ single-use containers from the waste stream each year!
A $5 deposit will be added for the reusable container, which will be refunded when the container is returned. Vista Grande Express is only available with Dining Dollars.
Mingle + Nosh
Mingle + Nosh took up residence this summer in the former Sweet Bar space. Worry not, Sweet Bar simply moved into a new, upscale cart next to Streats. This two-in one venue delivers both lighter as well as heartier fare. Mingle to one side for sure-to-satisfy paninis or head right to Nosh for smaller bites – the dips and salads.
Health Shack Goes Plant-Based
Health Shack now offers an entirely plant-based and locally sourced menu. Campus Dining is partnering with Harvestly to bring the freshest local ingredients for avocado toast, acai bowls and more.
Upgrade Your Eats with Premium Meals
Every other week Campus Dining chefs will be preparing an elevated menu offering featuring upscale dishes such as Frutti de Mar (pasta topped with sautéed shrimp, bay scallops, clams, and calamari tossed with a spicy tomato sauce) and Crème Brulée Cheesecake. These events will take place at different Campus Dining venues each time, so check the events calendar and stay in the know.
1901 Marketplace Progress
Walk through the University Union and it’s clear that work is being done in the 1901 Marketplace renovation. But what is actually being done? And more importantly, what is going to be in there when it is done? There’s a website for that. Check out 1901.calpolycorporation.org and get all your questions answered.
