The University of Notre Dame plans a five-month renovation of dining options at the Morris Inn beginning later this year. Plans call for expanding the existing Rohr’s restaurant and a new restaurant concept.
“We are excited to continue to enhance dining offerings for the broader community,” said Joe Kurth, senior director of the Morris Inn. “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.”
A larger dining area will be created for all ages at Rohr’s, including a new bar and increased seating for small groups. The new restaurant will take the space currently occupied by Rohr’s and Sorin’s.
Temporary food and beverage options will be offered throughout the hotel during the renovation, with plans in the works to expand room service offerings, and the Smith Family Ballroom and private dining rooms will remain open. The campus community will be called upon to provide input for menu options, pricing, hours of operation and more before completion of final designs. Renovations are set to begin in November.
