This article focuses on the additions to several classic American dishes. At the French Fry Frenzy Bar of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, several types of fries are offered, including sweet potatoes with toppings and condiments. Rather than depending upon a strict cycle menu, Bowdoin's dining services staff takes its cue from the students, along with the natural rhythm of the seasons. At the Dining Center of Baptist St. Anthony's Health System, visitors and staff now have nine different venues to choose from, including two display cooking stations.
