Union Bistro opens at Western Technical College in La Crosse

Students at a local college are once again serving up knowledge, one helping at a time.

Western Technical College’s Union Bistro opened for the spring season this morning.

The restaurant which changes their menu each week is run by Western Culinary students.

Culinary instructors at Western say the experience helps bring lessons to life.

“They have to apply the things they’ve learned in sanitation, in dining room theory, and just some of their management classes and food labs,” said Deb Lug, Culinary Management Program instructor at Western Technical College.

The restaurant is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling (608) 785-9215.
