Avesta reopens in the new University Union

Dinner The Avesta Restaurant is now open in the new University Union. The full-service, sit-down restaurant offers elegant dining with authentic world cuisine in a relaxing casual atmosphere. It’s conveniently located on the building’s second floor in room 248, near the entrance from Union Circle.

Entrees – which include vegan and vegetarian options – are priced at only $8.95. The menu offers artisan salads, pasta dishes, grilled salmon, and roasted chicken, as well as Persian and French dishes. Drinks, desserts and sides range in price from $1.75 to $2.50. The venue accepts cash, credit and even FLEX dollars.

“The previous Avesta in the old Union was a very popular venue offering classic cuisine,” said Mike Sood, director of food services for the University Union. “Now, we’ve totally redesigned both the decor and the menu to offer an even more unique and memorable dining experience.”

Avesta is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. More information and the full menu can be found online at

The restaurant also is looking for students to work with their team. If you are interested, visit the Dining Services Retail office in Room 244 to apply.
