Local Restaurant Offers 3 Course Meals for $12

Posted: Updated:

When you're making lunch decisions inevitably price and quality will be two determining factors where you eat.

After spending time in the classroom, students at the Culinary School at the Art Institute of Charleston work together to run their own restaurant offering meals for $12 downtown Charleston. In their final quarters in the Culinary programs, students handle both kitchen duties and front of house hospitality under the watchful eye of the chef faculty.

The $12 meal includes a three-course lunch menu featuring entrees like oolong marinated stripe bass with braised bok choy in a citrus-soy demi glace. There are appetizers like soba noodle salad in rice vinegar with cilantro, julienned vegetables and peanuts. Desserts complement the other two courses and feature items like green tea mousse cake.

"With our curriculum, everything builds to this point. They have a lot of experience and time in the classroom," Dillon snider, the Culinary Arts Department chairman and chef said. "They learn how to make great food, but to have this application is priceless."

Many of the 170 students enrolled in the program already work in established Lowcountry restaurants and said Charleston's reputation for good food pulled them to the region for culinary school.

The latest menu was inspired by Asian dishes. In the next rotation students will work on an Italian menu.

The restaurant is located on the third floor at the Art Institute on 24 North Market. It's open for lunch from 11:00 AM to 1:45 PM Thursdays and Fridays.  All gratuities collected go toward the Culinary Student Scholarship Fund.

 Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins and takeaway orders welcome. For reservations, call 843.727.3500 or email 24northmarket@aii.edu between 8 AM and 4 PM Monday through Friday.
