My favorite restaurant at the cia. Had the heirloom tomato app, short rib entree. Please remember these are student run restaurants, your visit may be on their first day in that restaurant.Which means the entire staff is new. Please be patient and enjoy!

What a wonderful experience it was. Never realized the extent the chefs go to make your dinner experience spectactular. It is a bit pricey, but you really get your money's worth when you experience all the different tastes and presentations you experience.
