  1. Sounds nice, is it possible to get that on another day?

  2. The special menu is available Friday, February 11 through Monday, February 14. Many of the items on it are also available a la carte in the dining room.
    Smith Commons is very popular right now and food is only available in the dining room currently. For the time being, we recommend getting a reservation for weekend dinners.
