JJ’s the Place To Be, Come Fall?

Bwog heard rumors that Dining was revamping JJ’s Place for fall 2012, so we contacted Victoria Dunn, Executive Director of Columbia Dining. Details, below.

Menu Changes

According to Vicki, “the idea with the menu revamp is to keep the JJ’s favorites, but introduce a new line of healthier options, including a brand-new salad bar with composed salads and a Jamba Juice Express. The menu will also include new items like Rancheros, Thaic hicken panini’s, and different flavored wings.” For the carnivorous among you, “The Dining Advisory team told us that they really wanted a larger, thicker burger.  We chose a porterhouse/sirloin blend with lots of seasoning. We also have a ton of toppings, so you can create your own burger  We taste-tested them with Dining Advisory team last week and they loved them.”

Venue Changes

The old German ratskeller aesthetic will remain—says Vicki, “We will be keeping the heart of JJ’s, but adding some light and comfort seating to the space. Renovations will be complete for the fall, “depending on construction.”

Why the redesign? “We needed to make some egress and access updates to the facility, so we took the opportunity to improve the program at the same time.”

Hours

Apparently, “JJ’s will no longer just be a nighttime destination—we will be extending hours during the daytime, and adding Sunday and Monday hours next year.”

The Takeaway

“The reaction we received from students about the new design and menu has been really positive, so we’re looking forward having the space filled with students enjoying good food.”

    @BC Are Barnard students still unable to swipe in?

      @Anonymous Barnard isn’t allowed to swipe into JJ’s? Can’t they get into John Jay Dining Hall, so why not JJ’s?

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous JJ’s is a completely different dining hall. Barnard has swipe access to two of Columbia’s dining halls, Ferris and John Jay. Columbia has swipe access to Barnard’s one dining hall, Hewitt.

        1. CC15 says:

          @CC15 These stupid artificial differences are pissing me off. I can’t swipe into Hewitt before 11 am? I can’t swipe in at Late Night or the Diana Cafe? I can’t swipe in guests at Hewitt? And then Barnard can’t come to JJs place? Does this make sense to anyone? WE EAT AT THE SAME PLACE DAMN IT.

  • hmmm says:

    @hmmm There’s a Dining Advisory team? Is this the same team that taste-tests the soups in John Jay?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Yup, and the same team that drops all the apples on the floor before putting them out.

  • huh says:

    @huh well i guess a “composed salad” is better than a frazzled salad.

  • Sceptical says:

    @Sceptical A real Jamba Juice or Jamba Juice-esque?
