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.
