Miami University welcomes new restaurants to campus

Seven dining options will be open for business on campus this year.

Sept. 5—While you would be hard pressed to find a Miami University student who is not sick of the construction on campus, this week brings the unveiling of one of the new additions, the Maplestreet Station. Located on Southeast Quad, students living in surrounding dorms will be particularly happy about this, as it comes with the opening of seven new dining options.

“I think the students will enjoy the variety of food choices along with the long hours at Maplestreet,” senior student manager McKenzie McDonald said. “We offer seven different restaurants that house a multitude of different gourmet and simple dining options.”

Beginning this week, four of the seven dining options in Maplestreet will be open for business:

Red Brick Pizza: 18” pizza pies available by the slice.

Delish: a submarine sandwich shop allowing you to design your own creation.

Encounter: an upscale burger, fries and shake place where diners write their order on a slip at their table.

Patisserie: an a la carte pastry and sweets shop that will also serve coffee.

There was a time when healthy food meant counting calories, omitting carbs, giving up sugar and going fat-free—in other words, it was all about deprivation.

But not anymore. Today’s definition of healthy means an overall focus on nutrition and wellness that doesn’t mean giving up enjoyment. It’s all about balance: good fats, healthy carbs, better sweeteners, wholesome ingredients and satisfying flavor enhancements. It means food that customers can feel good about, at the same time that they’re enjoying the dining experience.

Members of Congress and several advocacy groups gathered on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to highlight the potential loss of millions in state funding because of a Child Nutrition Reauthorization block grant introduced last month, and to call upon legislators to squash the bill.

The Improving Child Nutrition and Education Act of 2016 houses a statute that would provide three unannounced pilot states with block grant funding.

While it only serves 200 students and staff daily, the Muse School in Calabasas, Calif. , has a need for fresh produce that’s much larger than the typical K-12 school. The private institution serves entirely vegan fare, menuing 1,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables per week.

“Despite the large amount of produce we use, the great majority is consumed, and there’s little spoilage,” says Kayla Webb, executive chef. “We barely throw away any produce.”

The Muse School has strict policies in place—outside food is banned, for example, to cut down on waste. But even if an operation...
