Students cook delicacies for Chez Nous

Students cook delicacies for Chez Nous

On Tuesday, March 19, Northern Michigan University opened the doors to its student-run restaurant, Chez Nous, for the 2019 winter semester. Students, faculty, staff and the community are all welcome to dine at the traditional, fairly-priced restaurant located in the Jacobetti Complex on NMU’s campus. Chez Nous is run by second-year Hospitality and Management students in the Technology and Occupational Sciences Department.

“It teaches me a lot,” sophomore hospitality, tourism management and culinary student Owen Carlson said. “I learn a lot of new things that I always try when I make food with my family.”

Carlson has been in the culinary program for two years now and said the restaurant has given him a lot of practical experience and it is certainly worth going to. He said he’s also excited to share his feature dish of Mexican chicken tacos at Chez Nous on Tuesday, March 26.

The menu features dishes from parmesan pork chops and lemon garlic frog legs to Pot de Creme and triple chocolate Bailey’s pie. Each day the restaurant is open, guests will have the option to try a different delicious feature item made by each of the students, or pick from the mouthwatering, diverse menu.

Chez Nous gives students the opportunity to build their skills and understanding for meal preparation while gaining more experience. The students are also properly trained with special skills and knowledge about their ingredients and menu, to make sure the food and service is great for everyone who comes to dine with them.

“We all know how to make sure the food is clean and cooked properly,” Carlson said. “We really think about the recipes and we really try to make it good for everyone.”

The welcoming atmosphere of Chez Nous is sure to bring people from all over the Marquette area in to try the delicious dishes that you can’t find anywhere else on campus. The restaurant is open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. March 19 to April 18, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
