Kimmel Bogrette was busy over the 2008 summer transforming an outdated and undersized Dining Hall at Temple into the new Louis J. Esposito Dining Court, serving Johnson and Hardwick Residence Halls on the main campus. Completed in a matter of months from design through completion, the new Dining Court opened for the arrival of students in late August 2008. This project includes a new entry, servery, dining hall and two private dining areas, as well as an expansion of 1,700 square feet for a new seating area, increasing capacity to 700 seats. Now the largest restaurant on campus, the Dining Court is an “All You Care to Eat” food court that offers 13 food and beverage stations. Six self-serve food stations include a 48-item Salad Bar, 22-item Deli Bar, a Vegan Station, Pasta Bar, Fruit Station, and freshly baked Desserts. The Esposito Dining Court also serves as a venue for cooking exhibitions, live music, and other events that keep the Dining Court energized.
