Morris Inn to enhance dining options in November
Observer Staff Report | Monday, April 29, 2019
The Morris Inn will undergo five months of dining renovations beginning in November, the University announced in a press release Thursday.
Rohr’s restaurant will receive a number of expansions, including a new bar, “increased intimate seating for small groups” and an “elevated focus on food and beverage offerings,” the release said.
“Building off the enthusiasm and high demand of Rohr’s, the University will create one restaurant that celebrates the tradition and spirit of Notre Dame in an approachable, upscale, casual and social environment, with a focus on service and fresh and modern food,” Joe Kurth, senior director of the Morris Inn, said in the release.
According to the release, the updated restaurant will combine the dining space of both Rohr’s and Sorin’s and is set to open next spring. During the renovations, temporary dining options will be made available — including expansions to room service — and will pilot new foods and beverages. The Smith Family Ballroom and other dining rooms will stay in operation.
The Notre Dame community will be polled for input on other potential improvements for the inn, including open hours, prices and menu offerings, the release said.
