The College Road Trip Gourmet Guide

You’ve spent the day hiking through freshman dormitories, the undergraduate library, the bookstore, and across the campus quad. You’re ready to relax and recharge over a meal — before the next round on the next campus. So where do you dine? The College Road Trip Gourmet Guide is here to help.

We’ll bring you options — whether neighborhood hangouts or hidden gems, from grass-fed burgers and artisanal pizza to ropavieja and fried chicken and biscuits. You choose — dine by candlelight at a table overlooking the hills of southern California or on a picnic bench in a tavern next to Washington Square Park. We’re mining the epicurean (SAT word) intelligence of students, faculty, administration and alums to find you the spots you shouldn’t miss on your road trip.
