Montclair State University in New Jersey last month debuted a new food hall on campus, revamping its Sam’s Place eatery with some modern twists. “We wanted to create a space in which our students felt as though they are dining at a trendy neighborhood restaurant coupled with the comforts of eating at home,” Bill Heslin, senior director of residential dining, said in a statement.
Food Hall at Sam’s Place is home to nine branded stations as well as a grab-and-go market. Read on for a peek inside the updated space.
The space’s Pure Eats concept focuses on foods that are free of nine major allergens, as well as gluten, and houses separate prep space to avoid cross-contamination with other products served in the hall. This station offers two hot entrees each day as well as a variety of sides and desserts.
Students can use their declining balance or Red Hawk Dollars to buy a number of convenience products at the Market at Sam’s Place, including bottled drinks, pints of ice cream, chips and candy.
