In the fall of 2019, Benedictine re-opened its main dining hall, Benny's, on the second floor of the Krasa Student Center. Benny's provides a modern and food-focused dining experience for Benedictine students, faculty/staff, and guests of the university.
The most significant change the community has experienced since the opening of Benny's is chef operated custom stations spaced throughout out the existing second floor cafeteria space. The new design offers meal option stations (or "food platforms" ) immediately upon entry to the dining room. Expanded platforms include a robust fresh new Bakery; a Deli with soups and salads; the Grill featuring Middle Eastern selections; Pizza, Pasta and Calzone Hearth; a new varietal Salad Bar; and a Global Station serving seasonal and specialty menus.
The entire dining room features a new ceiling, wall and floor treatments with contemporary lighting and a variety of seating options. Booths, community tables and counter seating supplement low-top tables with flexibility for single and group seating. Benny's also features a single private dining room better suited for catered meetings and special events that is designed to seat approximately 90 guests.
