Rebecca’s Café to serve late night dining in Walker next spring
Rebecca’s Café, a local restaurant and catering service, will operate food service in Walker Memorial (Building 50) starting spring 2018. The Café will occupy Pritchett Dining Hall on the second floor, which previously closed in 2007.
The new service is expected to operate from 5 p.m. to midnight, five days a week, according to an email written by Todd Glickman ’77, senior director of corporate relations at MIT, and shared with the ec-discuss mailing list.
The Café opening was postponed due to delays in construction and design, Peter Cummings, DSL executive director for administration, wrote in an email to the The Tech, adding that the emphasis of the new dining service “will be on late-night dining for all students, regardless of whether they are on a meal plan.”
The feedback on designs for the kiosk, furniture and dining hall was provided by students from East Campus. Menu development started in the summer in cooperation with students from the Graduate Student Council, Muddy Charles Pub, and execs from Eastgate and 70 Amherst Street, Cummings wrote. The menu is still being finalized.
Rebecca’s Café operated out of a location in Kendall Square before the branch closed last year.
