By: Katie Krahulik News Editor As part of a major shift in the dining experience at Hofstra University, a recently negotiated dining contract includes a Smashburger which formally opened its doors to the community on Saturday, Sept. 2.

Come this May, Hofstra’s dining committee will decide which company will provide food services to the Hofstra community for the next 10 years, which will result in major changes in the dining halls and facilities on campus. “No matter who gets the contract, there will be significant changes,” said Vice President for Student Affairs W.

Review of the new Pizzeria in Hempstead
Review of the new Bobby Flay restaurant at Roosevelt Field Mall
On Tuesday, I was given the opportunity to sample some of the new menu that will accompany the radical new renovations to the building. Aside from the video menus, a promise of breakfast at times that aren’t breakfast (arguably the bet kind of breakfast) as well as a much more expansive menu than the Kate and Willy’s we used to know, Lackmann has done its best to stray from the usual burgers and fries mentality that it was plagued with in the past.

Names like Budweiser, Coors, and Natural Ice (aka Natty Ice) are household names when it comes to beer, but they were nowhere to be found at the Spring Craft Beer Expo at Nassau Coliseum.

Gentle Brew’s coffee shop, a quirky addition to Stewart Avenue that’s not too far from the Hofstra campus, prides itself on serving fresh coffee with an authenticity you’re not going to find at the local Dunkin Donuts.
