Bistro Menu

About our Fall 2013 Menu

In addition to our seasonal menu, on Tuesday and Wednesday 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 cooking of Mexico and Szechwan China. Each week we will feature a different regional cooking from around the world on our “specials” menu. On Thursdays and Fridays, 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.

Bistro lunch reservations are available. Please call 510-464-3405 during our lunch seating hours, 11:45 am – 1:00 pm, Tuesday through Friday.
