Student Restaurant

We have found an interesting restaurant that we might go and splurge on one night. It’s a chef school where the students have to cater for paying guests each Friday. The menu is a set 4 courses and dead cheap - $36. But the best bit of all is the fact that it is BYOB!!!

If you are ever in new york you might want to book a table for yourselves.

Here's the menu for September 16th

Mushroom and Roasted Fennel Soup
Roasted Beets, Baby arugula, Toasted walnuts, and Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad
Lemon-Thyme Tofu, Sauteed Brocoli Rabe with Garlic, Rosemary Quinoa with Grilled Eggplant and
Kalamata Olives, Carmelized Onion Sauce
Apple Cake, Cinnamon Ice Cream, Caramel Sauce, Maple-Pecan Tuille

Whilst searching for this restaurant i stumbled across the this interesting article about student chefs having their dreams crushed by student debt...

"In the way that the work of directors like Martin Scorsese flooded film schools with students in the 1970s, and the television show “L.A. Law” packed law schools in the 1980s, the rise of celebrity chefs has been good for culinary schools. But would-be top chefs face a challenge that most lawyers, engineers or nurses do not: few jobs in their chosen field pay enough for them to retire their student loans."
