A Taste of Art

Our facility also includes the Taste of Art Restaurant, the dining lab for students in our culinary program. This restaurant is student-run and open to the public, and was rated "Best Kept Secret" in Pittsburgh Magazine's Best Restaurants in Pittsburgh Reader’s Poll. The menu reflects international cuisine; this month it might be Thai and the next time you visit you may experience Egyptian cuisine.

Under the supervision of Chef Shawn Culp and an experienced and credentialed faculty of chef instructors, students create bistro-style dishes in the kitchen and run all aspects of the dining room.  From food ordering and preparation to guest seating and serving, Taste of Art is a complete instructional environment for students that offers a quality dining experience to its patrons.
