ATLANTA - Imagine this: A three-course meal at a chic Atlanta restaurant where you’re in and out in 30 minutes and your bill is less than $20. Sounds impossible, right?
Not at Creations, the student-run dining lab at the Art Institute of Atlanta. The restaurant is operated by culinary students, and is a chance for them to gain real-world skills before moving out into the restaurant business. All the food is prepared by upper-level students under the direction of chef faculty, and the servers are also upper-level students who are learning about dining room management. Lunch is currently served Mondays through Wednesdays, beginning at 11:30 a.m., and the lunch costs $16 (those with a valid Art Institute ID get a $4 discount).
Always one to help students (and help himself to food), Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken stopped by Creations, which is located on the campus of The Art Institute of Atlanta on Peachtree Dunwoody Road.
