Mercyhurst hospitality department announces spring dining series


The Mercyhurst University Hospitality Management Department has announced its 2013 Spring Dining Series, launching Friday, March 22, at The J.W. and Alice Marriott Café, located in the new Center for Academic Engagement at Mercyhurst University.

Hospitality management and culinary students will be preparing theme-inspired meals, such as “The Pacific Pier,” a seafood meal featuring New England clam chowder, crab-stuffed salmon and fried banana and mango ice cream; or an “Evening in Italy” feast with zuppa toscana soup, chicken parmesan and red raspberry gelato.

Since 1988, Mercyhurst students have been whipping up enticing meals for the public to fulfill one of their capstones within the degree’s curriculum. From dishwashing to writing menus to working as a general manager, the dining series give Mercyhurst juniors and seniors hands-on culinary and hospitality experience.

The dinners are $10 per person (plus tax). Dinners are served from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m.

To sign up for the 2013 Spring Dining Series mailing list at Mercyhurst Erie, please e-mail Allyson Minor at You will receive menus, as well as notice as to when you can begin making reservations.
