Feelings about the new “Summerfields Bistro” among returning students seem to be ambivalent, at best.
What used to make Summerfields worthwhile (aside from convenience for those living in the Butts/around Lawn Avenue), like the all-you-can-eat salad bar and the rotating menu of protein dinner options which quirkily corresponded to the four classical elements, has been replaced by a somewhat bland la carte fast food menu.
According to the Argus, even the Summerfields staff are annoyed:
According to Chef Charlie Morehead, Summerfield’s attendance dropped significantly over the first two weeks.
“The students don’t like the change and neither do we,” Morehead said. “We liked making home cooked meals and the concept was dropped.”
If you plan on continuing to eat at Summerfields but don’t like your options, email new Resident District Manager Michael Strumpf (firstname.lastname@example.org), or the returning Summerfields Manager John Esteves (email@example.com), or at least complain to your local WSA rep enough that they start to do something about it.
