Contemporary dining meets Old World charm just off the corner of 42nd and Walnut Streets in University City, Philadelphia. A sensuous experience of hospitality and culinary delight awaits the public at the dining rooms of The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College.
Guests may choose to dine in any one of our four dining rooms - each of which is specially designed to be a unique restaurant experience. The Great Chefs
, whose fine dining menu is developed by some of world's most notable chefs. The International Bistro
, which resembles a theatrical public square with beautiful storefronts, cobblestone paths and terrace dining. The Italian Trattoria
, featuring casual dining with various regional Italian pasta specialties. And the American Heartland
, a cozy treasure serving a contemporary approach to traditional American fare. These menus, as well as the special dessert menu
, change every semester so guests are always sure to experience something new each time they visit!
Reservations are strongly recommended for dinner. Availability may be limited due to private events, school functions and class size. The last reservation is taken at 9:30pm.
