The University of North Carolina Wilmington’s new dining hall, The Shore, has got what college students want in terms of the freshest food trends. The breezy atmosphere evokes ocean breezes and the concepts are a breath of fresh air for the trendy food fanatics on campus.
Just opened, The Shore has already made a splash. There are two existing dining halls, and during the planning process, the Aramark team wanted something totally new, in terms of look and feel—and responsive to feedback they’ve been gathering from students. Basically, what kind of food would get them excited to come and eat?
“The menu inspiration started with fresh, local ingredients, whether it is seasonal produce, locally sourced breads or products,” says Executive Chef Ryan Andress. “Our recipes are rooted in classic combinations, bold international flavors and on-trend concepts.”
The Shore features five chef-inspired stations: Hearth (pizza and pasta), Everything Bowl (custom, allergen-free), Baja (tacos), Carolina Home (sandwiches and avocado toast) and Daybreak (breakfast/brunch all day).
