Tartan Bistro

Tartan Bistro is more than a restaurant. As the Spring capstone class to the culinary degree program, it's a classroom full of future restaurant owners, executive chefs, pastry chefs, sous chefs, cooks, bakers, servers, bussers, bartenders, hosts, and dishwashers with one goal in mind - make customers happy. Let these students show you what they've learned!

Tartan Bistro is ending takeout service on March 25, 2021
