Fall 2014 CULA POSTCARDFor exquisite food and first-class service, reserve your seat at the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute’s LeBistro. The completely student-run restaurant — located at the Carmel Inn, 400 East First Street, Thibodaux — allows advanced culinary students to create and execute a menu, greet and service customers, and perfect their skills in a restaurant setting. Students are exposed to all facets of a restaurant: the front of the house with setting and servicing tables, interacting with customers and providing an atmosphere for a memorable meal.  In the back of the house, students  serve in a variety of positions, anywhere from dishwasher to executive chef.

LeBistro also gives the community the chance to interact with and enjoy meals prepared by some of the most sought-after aspiring chefs around.

Join us for dinner this FALL!
