Everyone’s favorite Tenured Radical got to eat at the Daniel Family Commons for free. In the meantime, check out Bon Appetit’s write-up of the place:
Welcome to the Commons!
This faculty/staff dining room will play a vital role on the campus. Having an option where faculty and staff can dine with students is crucial to maintaining and enhancing a sense of community. Here, in a relaxed atmosphere, you can quietly gather your thoughts before afternoon classes or chat with colleagues and students. We encourage you to invite students as your guests to the Commons! Bon Appétit will strive to make this dining experience simple, easy to use, and of course with a delicious culinary selection. Guests can choose to feast their way through the Lunch Buffet, which will change daily with choices from two meat entrées, one vegetarian entrée, and your starch or vegetable as a side. Take as much of each as you would like!
You can also choose the Soup and Salad bar as an option. Enjoy the abundant salad selections freshly prepared each day, or savor a homemade soup. Don?t expect to see the same thing twice! Our chef takes pride in generating as much variety in his menu as possible. With offerings such as Asian Pasta Salad, Arugula Mesclun Salad, or Scallop and Bay Shrimp Ceviche, you certainly won?t be bored with the Salad bar!
Freshly-baked bread and butter and ice water will be available at each table upon arrival. Your beverage selection consists of a variety of fountain sodas as well as coffee and tea. Our server will be available to take your drink order and bring it directly to the table!
For us non-faculty, we can find the weekly Marketplace menus here.
