The University of Michigan debuted two big projects this school year. Extensive renovations include the buzzed about South Quad Dining Hall and Fireside Café. The newly revamped dining hall cost $60 million and was modeled after the “micro-restaurant” concept. The space seats 950 people at a time. There are 10 themed stations featuring an all day breakfast bar, Mediterranean, sushi, vegan options, a deli, and a smokehouse. Frank Turchan, the executive chef for Residential Dining Services, announced that South Quad Dining will feature recognized guest chefs.
