The school occupies the full second floor of a building, and the restaurant is a fairly good size.
Some of my friends going up the escalator to the restaurant.
There were glass windows next to the entrance and I saw some students/chefs who were busy working....possibly baking our desserts?
Besides the restaurant, there is a little deli where you could buy a quick sandwich and grab a drink. It looked like there was both chicken and egg salad available.
The swimming "gals"!
Students led us to our tables, took our orders, and cooked our food. We had to evaluate our server at the end of our meal.
Some more of our servers:
This guy was so nervous that we thought he was going to spill our water on us! But he did well, and warmed up after awhile! He gave us a big smile here!
The cooks did a WONDERFUL job! Here they are in action!
The young students were following orders from this big honcho (the one with the BIG hat). He'd say what he wanted done, and I'd hear the students answer, "Yes, Chef!"
I walked up to the kitchen area and asked one of the cooks if I could take his picture. He said, "It's 'cause I'm good looking, right?" Oh, he was cute alright! And young! Unfortunately, my flash bounced off of the plexiglass and the photo didn't turn out. So then I held my camera up high and pointed it down towards him and at that time another cook joined him.
I sat back down and told my friends what happened and one said, "Why don't you stand on the side and take the photo?" So I went back to the area and asked if I could do just that. The girl in the above photo said "fine". The young man had his back to me. I yelled, "Hey cutie!" He immediately turned around and posed. Gotta love him!
Here is a shot of the area where you can sit by the counter.

And now for the food. The meal cost $10, which included a starter, entree and dessert.
First we were served bread and three different kinds of butter - not sure of all the flavors, but ONE of them was a tomato basil.
There were six starters and a flatbread or pizza to choose from. Here are just SOME of them.
This is what I ate. It was DELICIOUS!! The basil leaves were quick fried in oil so they were crisp.
|Caprese Salad - served with fried mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, roasted red peppers, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar reduction|
I had the salmon.
