A word from Academic Bistro - Drexel University
The Academic Bistro is the centerpiece of Drexel's Hospitality Management, Culinary Arts, and Food Science programs. Students taking courses in hospitality management and culinary arts utilize the Academic Bistro to rehearse the skills that will prepare them for a successful career in hospitality and fine dining.

During the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, the restaurant is open to the public on the days service courses are running, providing a delicious meal that demonstrates the students' creativity, planning, and preparation of food as well as the front and back of the house expertise that they are learning in the program.

Students prepare all meals from scratch, as much as possible, from sauce stocks to ice cream, using the freshest, highest quality ingredients. No two meals are the same and are guided by the rule of thumb that all must be delicious and visually appealing.

Diner Reviews
  • "A delicious, attractive meal served by our server with the right blend of reserve and warmth - The menu is attractively laid out - I liked having a full description of each item The flatbread was sensational - scent, temperature, flavor Thai Coconut Curry - yum - shrimp plumb, sweet potato nice accent to the other flavors Crisp Chicken Breast, though very good, was too large of a serving for the plate and it overshadowed the potatoes (which were very good). Having lunch on the 6th floor, overlooking Philly, in the Bistro, on campus - what a treat!"

  • "Everything was very good. Service of our main dishes was slow, but we were a larger party (of 4), noticed smaller parties (2-3), received their meals and desserts before we even got our main dish. It was fine though, the food was worth the wait!"
