ESpanish Table


De Julia Marín Morales ’14:

Vale, the concept of Spanish table in USDAN is not quite like this thing over here. NEVERTHELESS, it is a great opportunity to get all Spanish in los Estados Unidos with nice FLTA chicos like David, Axel and me (Julia).Tuesdays, from 12-14. (The Department just gave us a Spanish flag you just won’t miss)

Fecha: Until the end of the year
Tiempo: Noon–2 PM
Lugar: USDAN

Unofficial Orientation Series: Middletown Eateries, Part 1

Note: This is by no means an exhaustive list of eating options in Middletown. Many of the restaurants we missed will be featured in a second installment tomorrow, but feel free to add your own recommendations in the comments.


Middletown has so many fantastic dining options that at first you might feel like this turtle: faced with an almost insurmountable mountain of deliciousness. Much like the above turtle, though, you’ve got to start somewhere. We’re here to give you a head start.

From coffee-shop casual to awkward-family-dinner upscale, there’s food in Middletown for every occasion. This is Part 1 of our guide to some of the best places to eat in town, to be continued tomorrow.  Prices are on a $ to $$$ scale. Also worth noting is that a lot of Middletown restaurants accept Middletown cash, so save up some of that laundry money for your dining excursions. Read all of Part 1 of our food list after the jump!
