Cost-conscious gourmands will be delighted to discover Bistro Cordon Bleu. Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa’s new application restaurant which is the school's full-service, fine-dining restaurant, run and staffed by students. Towards the end of their 9 month curriculum, students are required to work in the restaurant, putting their newly acquired culinary skills and training to the test while having an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the dining room.
Students take turns preparing the food, waiting tables, and running the restaurant and spend time at all five stations: hot line, pantry, pastry, prep, and dining room. They also learn the finer points of tableside service as well as carving, saucing, and plating under the supervision of Signatures restaurant banqueting maitre D. This experience gives our graduating students a hands-on experience in a microenvironment that they will soon be dealing with on a day to day basis.
Students prepare and serve meals on an ever-changing thematic basis that is defined by their supervising master chef instructor. The themes are focused on classic seasonal French bistro favorites.
The all inclusive set price for the three course menu is $24.95, $32.00 with one glass of wine.
Bistro Cordon Bleu Restaurant seats up to 30 people and is located in the salle Cointreau of Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa Culinary Arts Institute as to dissociate it from Le Cordon Bleu Signatures restaurant also located in the same building.
The restaurant operates on Thursdays and Fridays for lunch and opens at 12:00 pm.
Reservations are necessary.
