Culinary students heat things up at SFSU

The Vista Room at San Francisco State University is an on-campus restaurant that provides student-made, full course meals to students, professors and faculty on campus.
Behind the scenes, the restaurant doubles as a hands-on lab for students majoring, or just simply interested in, hospitality management and dietetics. Meals are prepared, produced and served by students enrolled in food service management classes.

With a simple phone call, anyone on campus can call The Vista Room to make a reservation for a fine dining experience that provides California cuisine and includes vegetarian dishes.

Watch the video below to see what students are learning and what restaurant managers are teaching at this facility.

The menu that was provided during services that are featured in this video was delicious! I thank the staff and students at The Vista Room for their interviews and participation in my final project for this class.
