JWU Culinary Students Serve Up New Dishes for Bruins and Celtics Fans

Boston Bruins and Celtics fans are gaining a culinary experience direct from Johnson & Wales University. As part of a multi-year partnership between TD Garden, the Boston Bruins and JWU, College of Culinary Arts students have created four menu items available to the patrons of Legends, the private, members-only restaurant and bar located in TD Garden. Matthew Britt, CEC, instructor, College of Culinary Arts, led the students throughout the development of the menu items.

Taste TD Garden’s Game Day Menu at Harbor View

Whether you cheer on the Boston Bruins or the Philadelphia Flyers during next week’s game, JWU faculty, staff and students can taste TD Garden’s game day menu at Harbor View on January 31 starting at 4:30pm. As part of a multi-year partnership with TD Garden and the Boston Bruins, JWU culinary arts students have created four menu items for the patrons of Legends, the members-only restaurant and bar.

These items include: Nashville Hot Chicken ($26 on the menu), Essex Fried Clams ($20 on the menu), Jerk Wings (soon to be available), and Pork Hand Roll (soon to be available).

Make it a night out with colleagues, and for only $8.50 (cash, card, flex) or one swipe, you can eat like a Bruins fan! To learn more about this partnership and the students behind the dishes, read this week’s feature story.

A Message from JWU Environmental Health and Safety

Now that winter is here, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) would like to remind the JWU community to be mindful of the potential for slips, trips and falls.

  • EHS works with the university’s floor mat vendor to place and maintain floor mats at building entrances. During severe storms, or times when snow and ice starts to melt, floor mats have the potential to temporarily be inundated with water. EHS maintains a supply of temporary mats to replace as necessary. Please use School Dude when requesting a temporary mat.

  • During winter storms, JWU Facilities works hard day and night to maintain access to buildings on a priority basis. The reality is that Mother Nature can sometimes create a snowy/icy mess quicker than the grounds team can clear it away. EHS encourages everyone to be wary of potentially slippery conditions throughout the winter season and to be mindful of where they are walking. Please try to avoid using your cell phone while walking outside. 

  • Be aware of other hazards winter storms may bring such as blind spots from snow banks. You may not see vehicles coming if you walk out into a street between snow banks—and they may not see you.
