, Frederick Community College’s (FCC) gourmet restaurant opens February 29. The Hospitality, Culinary and Tourism Institute (HCTI) students will once again showcase their impeccable skills in the three-course dinner service. Reservations are now available and open to the public for dine-in or takeout, from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday evenings (except April 4, April 18, and April 25) through May 9.
As part of a unique course called Restaurant Production and Service, FCC HCTI students participate in the running of the restaurant as a capstone learning experience. Under the guidance of the executive chef and instructors, students will prepare food, as well as serve guests in the dining room, to accentuate a quality dining experience for the community.
The menu theme for spring 2024 is “A Taste of New Orleans.” Customers choose from selections including a starter, entrée, dessert, and beverage, for an all-inclusive price between $40 and $46. Menu items include smoked pork loin chop with stone ground cheddar grits, satsuma glazed chicken confit with whipped sweet potatoes, Chesapeake blue catfish with shrimp étouffée and rice, vegetarian jambalaya with grilled eggplant and creole tomato sauce, bananas foster, doberge cake, and more. All proceeds from the restaurant support student learning in the HCTI program and HCTI student scholarships.
“Each semester, I am both honored and delighted to oversee our students as they complete their capstone learning experience,” said Elizabeth DeRose, HCTI manager. “Our students are excited to share the skills and passion they have worked so hard to develop, and our community is excited to support and enjoy the results of their culinary training through our program.”
Advance reservations are required and only major credit cards are accepted for payment. The restaurant is located in the Monroe Center at 200 Monroe Avenue in Frederick.
