Bistro Ruth Student-Run Restaurant

Bistro Ruth logo FINALFor exquisite food and first-class service, reserve your seat at the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute’s Bistro Ruth. The completely student-run restaurant — located in the new Lanny D. Ledet Building at the intersection of Highway 1 and Bowie Road in 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.

Named in honor of New Orleans restaurateur Ruth Fertel, Bistro Ruth also gives the community the chance to interact with and enjoy meals prepared by some of the most sought-after aspiring chefs around.
