student-run restaurant

Each year during the fall and spring semesters, our Professional Culinary Students prepare a multi-course luncheon daily as a way to gain a real-time experience of working in a fine dining restaurant. During our Winter Restaurant, we serve a 4-course bistro style menu. Our Spring Restaurant is a 8-course degustation menu developed by the students themselves. We are also proud to serve wine that has been generously donated by some of the area's finest wineries.

We have gained quite a reputation for our creative decor, excellent service and superb cuisine. Meals are prepared using produce from our organic student garden, eggs from our own hens and humanely raised meat products from the local purveyors.


Due to our dining room capacity and growing popularity of our Student-Run Restaurant, we suggest reserving your tables as soon as possible using our online reservation form below. The largest party we are able to accommodate is six people. Payments accepted are cash or check only. Winter Restaurant is November 28-December 13, 2017 (Tuesday through Friday) and reservations can be made online beginning Tuesday, November 14, 2017.

Any special dietary restrictions must be included in your reservation. We will do our best to serve you, however, please keep in mind that this is an educational institution and we may not be able to accommodate severe allergies or restrictions.
