1301 Hen House – a “Ghost Kitchen” – Comes to UMW

Get ready to enjoy some great “chickee” dishes from University Dining’s new ghost kitchen – 1301 Hen House! While the campus eateries are closed for the summer, the chefs have tapped into the new “delivery only” dining craze that doesn’t require any physical restaurant space. All the food is ordered online, prepared in the University Center kitchen, and then delivered to guests by Grubhub. Service is offered daily between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The fun and quirky menu includes super loaded “Chicken Feed” curly fries, “Hen House” chicken tenders, “Chicken Coop Greens” salads, and “Barnyard Bites” – sweet or savory donut holes. The culinary team created a special gluten-free breading for the tenders, and the “Hippie Chick” vegetarian mixed greens salad is right on trend with honey-glazed tofu, dried cranberries, a quinoa blend, walnuts, and a Madras curry apricot vinaigrette.

The full menu can be viewed on Facebook @1301 Hen House. Orders may be placed using the regular marketplace Grubhub app. Just search for 1301 Hen House. The campus Grubhub app only serves campus restaurants and is currently closed for the summer. It will become active again when University Dining restaurants reopen on August 21st.
