A week late in posting, but better late than never: Orange Coast College's Captain's Table, the restaurant that functions as a lab and training class for the school's culinary students, is now open for the Fall Semester. Actually, their inaugural lunch was last week.
I've been to a few of these in the past and it's always been fun (if only because you're really rooting for these kids to do well). And although some of the themes are better than others (the French lesson theme was much better than their Japanese one), the food is always a bargain for the quality.
This year, they're changing things up. The focus will be on American regional cooking and the meals will be served family style and not individually plated.
But it still occurs every Thursday, though there is now only one seating: at noon. The cost is $12. But as always, the food will be cooked and served by the students themselves.
Their reservations book gets filled up quickly, so call ahead.
Here's their full schedule.
