Frederick Community College Student-Run Restaurant Reopens Next Week | Services
The student-run restaurant at Frederick Community College, 200 Monroe, reopens for in-person dinner service this week for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Offering three-course meals, 200 Monroe will be open every Thursday from Oct. 7 through Dec. 7, except Oct. 14, according to a press release on Friday.
“This is a unique opportunity for the public to engage with our students and benefit from the results of the incredible culinary skills they have learned in our program,” Elizabeth DeRose, Program Manager for The Hotel Institute, culinary and tourism agency of the FCC (HCTI), said in a prepared statement. “We offer in-person catering and take-out to ensure that everyone in the community can enjoy this limited-time experience.”
As part of the HCTI student synthesis experiment, 200 Monroe workers shared their time between the kitchen and the front of the house. They offer diners a soup or a salad, four options of appetizers and three choices of desserts. Entry options include:
- French chicken piccata – chicken breast breaded with eggs and sautéed in lemon caper butter and parmesan tomato orzo with sautéed asparagus
- Cioppino – shrimps, scallops, mussels and cod in a tomato broth with white wine and garlic, served with garlic bread
- Braised beef brisket – creamy polenta, roasted tomatoes, Calabrian peppers, natural juice
- Campanelle pasta with wild mushrooms – cremini mushrooms, black trumpet and chanterelles, asparagus, creamy white wine sauce, finished with truffle oil
