Widener Press Release
Students from the Widener University Center for Hospitality Management have kicked off the popular “Spring 2018 Themed Dinner Series – A Fine Dining Experience.” Throughout the semester, members of the public are invited to experience fine dining and vibrant flavors from around the world.
Guests will enjoy a four-course, fixed-price meal prepared and served by the Center for Hospitality Management students as part of their Restaurant Operations Management Course.
The student management teams are assigned a theme and each team plans, develops and executes the meal from pre- to post-production to create an elegant and formal dining experience. The students – many of whom are pursuing careers in event planning and restaurant/hotel management – are responsible for service, operations and financial management all while managing their fellow students that are producing and serving these meals.
Dinner is served in the J. Willard & Alice S. Marriott Dining Room located in Academic Center North on the Main Campus of Widener University in Chester.
The dinners are prepared on select Wednesday evenings from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and reservations are required. For reservations, please call 610-499-1127 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations for parties of six or more must confirm the Friday before the reservation date. Any unconfirmed reservations will be canceled.
