The Dining Room at Kendall College recently earned a recommendation in the MICHELIN Guide Chicago 2012. This is the second consecutive recommendation for Kendall’s fine-dining restaurant—which is open to the public and doubles as a classroom offering practical instruction in real-world operations—from Michelin, publisher of the world-renowned restaurant rating systems and guide.
“For The Dining Room to be recognized in The MICHELIN Guide Chicago twice in a row demonstrates the quality of our extraordinary faculty and students, and their commitment to excellence,” said Dean Renee Zonka, RD, CEC, CHE.
Lunch and dinner are prepared and served in The Dining Room five days a week by students enrolled in the Schools of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management, under the instruction of faculty chefs Benjamin Browning and Peggy Ryan and service instructors Steve Grand Pré and Pamela Stoner. The restaurant has been recognized and highly rated by Zagat Survey 2011/12 and received accolades by respected food critics from the Chicago Sun-Times and public-broadcasting station WTTW-TV’s “Check, Please!”
