Even while the bricks are still being laid for the new dining hall, Miami University Housing, Dining, Recreation and Business Services (HDRBS) is hard at work finalizing the menu for MapleStreet Station.
MapleStreet Station will give students the option for seven different dining experiences, according to Jon Brubacher manager of purchasing and operation analysis for HDRBS.
However, the dining hall will not be organized in a food court style like Shriver Center’s Haines Food Court. Each of the seven operations will have a separate entrance.
MapleStreet Station will serve food that is not found at any other dining location on campus, according to Brubacher.
“There might be a few items that are the same but for the most part its all going to be new: new recipes, new products, new items, new concepts,” Brubacher said.
MapleStreet Station will include a pizzeria, a gourmet burger station with fresh cut fries, an all-day breakfast/brunch restaurant, and a Jewish-American style deli that serves hot sandwiches such as reuben sandwiches, and there will also be patisserie, which will serve pastries, candies and espresso.
MapleStreet Station will also include a South and Central American themed restaurant, which will have a large vertical rotisserie for roasting meat and vegetables in addition to a salsa bar. This restaurant will also serve yucca chips, tamales and elotes, which is corn on the cob that has been roasted with spices and covered with cheese.
In addition to this restaurant, MapleStreet Station will also contain a Pacific Rim themed restaurant, which will serve dumplings, sushi, noodles, and pre-made entrees for students on-the-go.
MapleStreet Station will incorporate locally raised food whenever possible, Brubacher said.
