Moody Towers Dining to Begin Construction for Renovation Project

Moody Towers Dining Hall will soon undergo extensive renovation to transform its current layout into an innovative, Fresh Food Co. dining experience for the fall.

Redesigning the dining hall, this new concept will involve several �mini-restaurants�, which will prepare dishes according to diners� specifications in true made-to-order fashion.

From Mediterranean and Mongolian grills, to vegetarian stations, diners will be �surrounded by the aromas of fresh foods cooking, and the variety of international and American cuisine�, according to the Fresh Food Co. for UH Dining Services.

Customers will have the opportunity to direct the chef to which ingredients they would prefer in their dish, and watch the meal cooked in front of them.

According to Fresh Food Co., �Food is cooked to order in full view of the customer, reaffirming the freshness of their choice, and minimizing waste�.

This is an exciting enhancement for dining at the University of Houston, as this acquisition will mark the largest facility of its kind in the Southwest region.

The Moody Towers Dining Hall is currently closed for the renovation and is expected to reopen by the beginning of the fall semester. However, Oberholtzer Dining Hall will remain open all summer.
