Retail dining has taken a couple of unique upward turns this spring at the University of Maryland (UMD) in College Park. First, a concept called Samovar opened in late March in a renovated wing of the school’s H.J. Patterson Hall with a menu that includes customized ramen soup bowls, sushi and specialty teas made in, yes, a samovar (an urn used to make tea in Russia).
