Also recently announced is The Daily Meal’s 75 Best Colleges for Food in America for 2014, on which Bon Appétit newbie Johns Hopkins University occupies the #2 slot! From the writeup:

Johns Hopkins’ dining services boast a hotel-quality brunch, food and wine pairings for seniors, themed monotony breakers each month, and cooking classes in on-campus residences that focus on healthy eating. There are also monthly faculty and staff dinners with students to promote community building as well as weekly chef demonstrations, tastings and samplings in retail locations. Options served at the dining hall include manicotti puttanesca, house-smoked beef brisket sandwiches, Texas-style French toast, and oven-roasted meatloaf with honey carrots and steamed peas, so you will always be eating well at Johns Hopkins. Everything in the dining halls is made in small batches, from scratch, which not only gives students the freshest options available, but also reduces waste. Sustainability is very important on campus, which is why the dining services only uses compostable paper products and to-go packaging, and it composts all its food wastes and organic materials. JHU also only purchases cage-free eggs, hormone-free milk, and locally grown produce. And if you are a student on campus craving a late night bite, C-stores on campus are open as late as 2 a.m.
