Ology Restaurant

Our facility also includes Ology Restaurant, the student-run restaurant of The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Austin. Ology has a five-course prix-fix menu that changes quarterly. Diners are treated to local and international cuisine—everything from a taste of Asia to meals inspired by the Lone Star state.

The restaurant also offers burgers, veggie burgers, chicken sandwiches, soup, and salads.

Ology is run under the supervision of a Chef Instructor and Front of House Manager. Students prepare the meals and run the front-end of the restaurant, from taking reservations to seating and serving diners.

Ology is an opportunity for culinary students to demonstrate their skills in a real-world environment—and for diners to experience delicious meals showcasing the students' talents.
