“This restaurant gives students hands-on practice. They learn about the culture of different regions and design a menu around those foods,” says Chef Laura LaGue, instructor for American Regional Cuisine. “They have to understand food cost, sourcing of ingredients, harmonious parings of courses and plate presentation; just like they would in a restaurant setting.”
Bistro 3158 is open to the public. In lieu of a gratuity, guests are invited to complete a comment card, which further supports the learning process.
Riverbats Café also opens at Eastview Campus on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. beginning this week.
