San Diego – Staring this past week, 72 Fifty,  the Mesa College on-campus restaurant, began offering their specialty Fall Dinners. This week featured classic French cuisine, including  Vichyssoise, crème fraiche,  Beef Wellington, and Duck Confit. As one of only a few culinary programs in the nation that operates a classroom-driven restaurant that's open to the public, the Fall Dinners allow Mesa students to gain first-hand experience modeling food preparation techniques, food safety, sanitation, and menu planning while working with modern equipment in newly renovated facilities.

 

Next week is the Gastronomy menu; each item will have a fun and delicious element of molecular gastronomy. Mesa College culinary students will be serving up different menus and delicacies each Wednesday and Thursday evening from 4:15pm-6:45pm (last seating is at 6:30pm) through October 2023.

 

Fall dinners are open to the public; groups and families are welcome. Reservations are not required, but recommended for groups and during several specialty menus evenings, as some evenings do sell out. Dinners are available for dine-in or take-out.

 

Days/Times:      Wednesday and Thursday

4:15pm-6:45pm (last seating is at 6:30pm).
