The CIA Gatehouse Restaurant, located at The Culinary Institute of America’s historic St. Helena facility, is the capstone experience for CIA students after two years of rigorous culinary, baking and pastry, hospitality and beverage management instruction. These future industry leaders transform the freshest regional ingredients, as well as those from the CIA’s own farm and herb gardens into creative contemporary dishes, served graciously in a refined yet casual dining room. Your dining experience is orchestrated by CIA faculty-led students, making for a memorable event.
Inspired by the changing seasons and what’s ripe in our garden, the students create a menu that highlights produce at its peak of freshness, sustainably raised meat and seafood, local ingredients, and other high-quality provisions made from scratch. Reservations are strongly encouraged for lunch and dinner Tuesday-Sunday.
