Feb. 10, 2015

Nicolet College Culinary Arts students will broaden their talents now through May by preparing a wide variety of specialty buffets and themed lunches at the student-run Top of the Hill restaurant, which is open to the public.

The series will take customers on a virtual world-wide epicurean tour with dishes from many different regions in the U.S. and numerous foreign countries. International fare will include dishes from Greece, Italy, Panama, Spain, Peru, Chile, Germany, Mexico, India and China. Dishes from this continent will include selections from Texas, Bourbon Street, Hawaii, Wisconsin, and the Wild West.

Lunches will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday most weeks through mid-May. The restaurant is located in the Northwoods Center on the Nicolet Campus one mile south of Rhinelander just off of Hwy. G.
