The first of two eateries slated for the former Dinky train station buildings on University Place is scheduled to open this summer, a Princeton University official said Monday night.
Agricola owner Jim Nawn’s Fenwick Hospitality Group is partnering with the school to operate a restaurant and cafe in the former Dinky station buildings on University Place in downtown Princeton.
The cafe will open in July, said Kristin Appelget, the school’s director of community and regional affairs. The restaurant will open in 2017, hopefully before reunions, Appelget told the Princeton Council. The academic buildings in the school’s arts and transit neighborhood are slated to open in the fall of 2017, she said.
The transit elements of the Arts and Transit Project were completed in 2014 and include the new, train station, Wawa convenience store, and commuter-parking. The project also includes three buildings, now under construction, that will provide rehearsal and performance spaces for the Lewis Center for the Arts and the school’s department of music.
