Welcome to The Verdict, Flyby's newest advice column! After living at Harvard for officially 82 days (88 if you count FOP; big shout out to FOP 12!), I can finally say I am happy with my meals here. I have figured out to get exactly what I want out of every breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Everyone complains about the dining hall food, many for good reason; but if you search a little harder and spend five more minutes curating your plate, there’s no reason not to be satiated and, dare I say it, satisfied.
Decorations cover the entree line in Lowell Dining Hall Thursday evening, Oct. 24th, 2013. Harvard dining halls offered a harvest-themed dinner with mashed potatoes, fresh squash and other fall delicacies.
This year, rumor has it that Leverett Dining Hall has rebranded itself as “Bistro Lev” due to Cambridge zoning laws which currently classify it as an assembly/residence. While we can’t speak to the truth of this, we know for certain that Harvard’s food scene has irrevocably changed.
Having been here for almost a month now, the novelty of getting to eat hamburgers and spaghetti all the time has officially faded. Even ice cream just isn’t so special anymore. (Disclaimer: It’s probably due to the fact that I’ve had ice cream basically every day here; freshman fifteen here I come!)
With so many top chefs jockeying for a position, Cambridge can now lay claim to being a fine dining destination. And you thought Harvard college life was competitive.
