Western Student Restaurant Open To The Public

Western Technical College’s student-run restaurant will open for the spring term beginning Thursday, Jan. 30, from 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. on the first floor of the Kumm Center, 400 6th St. N., La Crosse.

The Union Bistro, run by Culinary Management and Culinary Assistant students, gives the students an opportunity to experience different aspects of operating a restaurant. Each week, the theme of the restaurant will change, giving customers a different look at the dishes students prepare, as well as providing a changing environment for the class. The Union Bistro will be open Thursdays throughout the Spring Term except for March 5.

“The Union Bistro is such a great aspect of our Culinary Management program,” said Debl Klug, instructor for the Culinary Management program at Western. “Students learn all aspects of a restaurant – including customer service sanitation, production, and timing. This is a culmination of all their training at Western.”

Entrees range from $7.00 to $9.00 and starters, small plates, and desserts range from $3.00 to $5.00.

Restaurant reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling Deb Klug at (608) 785-9215 or emailing klugd@westerntc.edu.
