The Union Bistro Is Back!

Western Technical College’s student-run restaurant is planning to open every Thursday for the spring term beginning Jan. 18, 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.

“This is such a great opportunity for our students to learn real life restaurant skills,” said Deb Klug, instructor for Culinary Management program at Western. “They 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

Enjoy this yummy opportunity!
