Earlier this year, the entire Johnson Center food court in the Atrium closed down in order to be renovated and bring new restaurants to the Johnson Center. Some students were sad to see some of their favorite places to eat close down, but others were excited for the increased variety and quality of dining options that would come with the renovation. Now, the renovation is complete and all restaurants are open!
Blaze Pizza, Garbanzo, and Steak ‘n Shake are new to campus, and Star Ginger
has reopened after renovation. Red Hot & Blue and IndAroma moved downstairs to the ground floor and are now also open. Chipotle is estimated to open in the Atrium during the Spring semester.
In addition to the change in restaurants, a patio was built on the west side of the Johnson Center for extra seating. The patio construction is complete, and plenty of seating is available for students to enjoy lunch.
There’s almost always a construction project going on at Mason. To keep up, visit shopmason.gmu.edu/construction-update/.
