About our menu

In addition to our seasonal menu, on Thursdays and Fridays our students will be taking a culinary trip around the world with their class International Cuisine. From classic French and Italian cooking to the fiery flavors and techniques of Mexico and Szechwan China, each week we will feature a different region of the world on our “specials” menu. Also, Monday through Wednesdays, our Contemporary American Bistro Cooking class will be serving “specials” featuring the best seasonal foods, and many local, organic and sustainable products prepared with a modern flair.

Please join us in the Laney Bistro as our students hone their culinary skills offering you fine dining at affordable prices.
