The new and improved Curry Stu­dent Center is back in business.

After a summer of ren­o­va­tions, Curry reopened on Tuesday morning with a slate of new restau­rants along­side pop­ular standbys. The bright, modern space includes 150 addi­tional seats on a new second-​​floor mez­za­nine and a relo­cated infor­ma­tion desk closer to the North­eastern Book­store.

The whole space has a dis­tinc­tive North­eastern feel,” said Mau­reen Tim­mons, the director of Northeastern’s Dining Ser­vices, in describing the Curry space’s first major makeover in nearly two decades.

The new eateries include UBurger and Sweet Toma­toes Pizza, both of which are local chains; Popeye’s Fried Chicken; and Kigo Kitchen, for which the stu­dent center is the new con­cept restaurant’s first loca­tion. The new dining options are joined by Taco Bell, the West End and the On-​​The-​​Go con­ve­nience store.

The restau­rants rep­re­sent a broad range of meal items from cul­tures across the globe with a focus on quality, fresh food.

We started pulling fla­vors from dif­ferent regions and doing our home­work in terms of ingre­di­ents,” said Heather Nuci­fora, the exec­u­tive chef for Kigo Kitchen. “I think we’ve done a good job of even mixing ingre­di­ents from dif­ferent coun­tries together in one bowl.”

The Star­bucks cof­fee­house located in after­HOURS has also reopened.

From the outset, stu­dent input was key to selecting the eateries, Tim­mons said. The final slate of new restau­rants was approved ear­lier this year by the under­grad­uate Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment Asso­ci­a­tion.

SGA was involved in helping the uni­ver­sity figure out which ven­dors were going to come to campus,” said Terry Mac­Cor­mack, the SGA vice pres­i­dent for stu­dent ser­vices and a mid­dler polit­ical sci­ence major.

Sweet Toma­toes Neapolitan Pizza offers cus­tomers pizza slices, which have not been avail­able on campus for sev­eral years.

Hedy Jarras has run the pizza restau­rant for more than a decade, growing her busi­ness from one to three loca­tions in the Boston sub­urbs. North­eastern is her first restau­rant in Boston.

I’ve been in busi­ness for 14 years,” said Jarras, who opened her first restau­rant in Newton Center when she was 23. “I love what I do, I love pizza, I love the people I work with,” she added. “To come here and even be rec­og­nized was really spectacular.”

The revamped space, designed by Cambridge-​​based archi­tec­ture firm Prell­witz Chill­inski Asso­ciates, aims to pro­vide a venue for stu­dents to meet and eat, while dou­bling as a loca­tion for a broad range of campus events.

We wanted to cap­ture the flex­i­bility of the space to make sure it met the needs of all the dif­ferent users, as well as give the stu­dents a place to take own­er­ship of,” said Laura Portney, a designer with PCA.
