Potential Menu Offerings

California Dreamin'

California has long been the cutting edge in what’s new and what’s hot on the culinary stage. Our students invite you to experience their version of a page cut from the West coast playbill. Diners can expect foods that have been fused with Pacific, Asian, and Latin influences.

Carolinas & South

The southern region of the U.S. is rich in history as well as agriculture, produce and dairy products. Join us on a culinary tour of this historic region.

French Country Fare

As the students practice a bit of skill and showmanship, some selections on this menu will be partially or completely prepared at tableside and may include a flambé or flaming coffee service. Plan on a relaxing meal time as the French believe in somewhat longer meal service to fully appreciate the efforts of the Chef and the servers. As this is a controlled learning environment, we request that reservations are limited to one table per caller, with a maximum of four people.

German Haus

Germany is rich in culture and history, dating back to Medieval and Renaissance times. This popular cuisine reflects a variety of pork, lamb, beef, veal, poultry and seafood. The standards of dumplings and potatoes will accompany your selections.

Grand Banquet

This banquet style service features a five-course, pre-determined meal created by our student chefs and consists of a selection of delicacies representing current culinary trends in both food and service. At lunchtime, diners can count on the same great food and service with slightly smaller portions.


The Mediterranean theme includes many different cultures, where a variety of meats, poultry, seafood, grains, nuts, fruits, pastas, breads and vegetables abound. We feature countries such as Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Northern Africa on Ione’s culinary tour through these mythical lands.

New England Bounty

The states of this region—Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and Rhode Island—have long maintained the tradition of excellent seafood cooked simply to keep its natural flavors and textures intact and at the pinnacle of freshness. So catch a whiff of the salt air and bring your appetite on a culinary tour of this northernmost region of the U.S.

The inclusion of beverages, appetizers, soup, salad, and dessert differs from theme to theme. Please check with your server to verify menu options and pricing.
