Academic Bistro

Our unique dining room serves as a classroom both for our students and for some of the area's best chefs and food minds. 

Lunch in the Academic Bistro

Throughout the year, the Academic Bistro is open to the public on select days with students preparing and serving multi coursed meals.  An emphasis is placed on health and sustainability and food is prepared with the freshest local ingredients whenever possible, some even from our own student-run Bistro Garden just a block away. 

Hours of service varies by term; check back for information or email for the current schedule.
