What’s New on the Menu? – Armstrong (2015)

We find ourselves just under two weeks away from the start of classes and many of you will make the trek back to beautiful Oxford, Ohio even before then (we do have some dining locations available from Monday, August 17 – Sunday, August 23).

As you gather your things for another year of college, or your very first, we want to prepare you for the exciting new food items that you will be seeing as you return to campus. First and foremost, turkey sausage will be making its debut on the Oxford campus. You will be able to find it for breakfast campus-wide starting this fall.

While there are a number of menu additions across campus, let us first begin with the incredibly popular Armstrong Student Center.

Haines’ Boulangerie

Haines’ remains mostly the same from last year, with one major addition. A boulangerie, by definition, is a bakery that specializes in baking and selling bakery items. While Haines’ will continue to offer sandwiches, salads and soups, Haines’ will also provide students and staff with an enhanced bakery with both breakfast and dessert items.

Cookies have been added to the menu (chocolate chip, expresso) with mini turtle bites and shortbread. Cupcakes, reminiscent of the beautiful Patisserie cupcakes at Maplestreet, will make their Armstrong debut at Haines’ as well with toffee crunch, oreo blast and mint chocolate chip flavors.

The bakery will also be expanded with other pastry items like danishes, donuts and scones, just to name a few.

Mein Street/Wing Bar

Mein Street’s menu hasn’t really changed from last year, but the major addition to that area of Armstrong is the new Wing Bar, which will go by the name “Wing Bar”, making it perhaps the easiest dining location name to remember.

The Wing Bar is brand new and will take up residence next to Mein Street, up against the wall that divides Mein Street and Haines’ Boulangerie. The Wing Bar will specialize in, you guessed it, wings! There will be seven different sauces early on, including Hot Buffalo, Medium Buffalo, Mild Buffalo, Honey BBQ, Hot BBQ, Asian and Parmesan Garlic Sauce. We are always open to new ideas though, so feel free to reach out with suggestions for us to explore!

The Wing Bar also means the return of boneless wings and a permanent residence for those glorious mozzarella sticks! Expect Wing Bar to be a student favorite in no-time.

Burgers at Pulley will now be made in the “smash-style”, which is with fresh patties, pressed into the stove, resulting in a fresher, even more delicious, burger.

Pulley Diner

Pulley is another location that is adding quality options to their menu. Pulley is adding a BLT sandwich and offering shoestring fries instead of crinkle fries, which will be a little more unique.

The big change in the Pulley kitchen will be with the burgers. Don’t worry, they still exist, but now they will be made in a “smash-style” with raw meat literally smashed on the cooking surface to form and cook the patties. The result will be, fresher, even tastier burger patties for your enjoyment. There will be standard hamburger, cheeseburger and double cheeseburger options.

I know where I will be.

Sundial

The first thing to note with Sundial is that wings will no longer be offered there. However, that is merely because the Wing Bar will be your wing destination instead, so no worries… you can still find some wings when you stop by Armstrong.

Sundial will be focusing on pizza, pasta and the new “build your own” calzones that they will now be offering. Sundial offered personal “build-your-own” pizza last year (and still will this year) and will expand that service to calzones. So, if you’re craving a calzone, Sundial will now be able to help you cure that craving.

Serrano/Emporium/Miami Ice

These three locations are not really changing their menus entering this year. Emporium remains a top-notch market in Armstrong and Miami Ice remains a wonderful “go-to” destination for ice cream, gelato, coffee products and some bakery/pastry items. Serrano returns to it’s roots as a Mexican dining option, offering burritos, burrito bowls, loaded nachos, taco salads and quesadillas. Serrano also has a unique dessert option in the delicious cinnamon chips with marshmallow dip, which is definitely worth checking out.
