Glion’s student-run restaurant opens to the public

Starting August 9th, Glion Institute of Higher Education is opening its student-run restaurant to the public. The Hotel des Alpes Restaurant, La Table des Alpes, will serve lunch and dinner from Tuesday to Friday with two distinct themes for lunch and dinner.

Bistro style: quick, casual lunch service

Glion student servingFor lunch, La Table des Alpes will feature a bistro-style concept with an “a la carte” menu, quick service and a causal atmosphere. The student-staffed restaurant will aim to serve lunch in 40 minutes or less, the perfect time for casual and business lunches.

For the modest sum of 22-28 CHF on average, the restaurant proposes appetizers, salads, main courses and a dessert, all composed of locally-sourced market products with the option of wine pairing. Service starts at 12:00 and the last seating is at 12:45.

Fine dining: a fancy, five-course dinner

In the evening, the restaurant will transform into a fine dining establishment offering a refined menu composed of five courses that change every week: amuse bouche, entrée, fish dish, meat dish and dessert.

The up-scale atmosphere requires a smart casual dress code (no t-shirts, shorts or sneakers). From 6:30 to 8:00 (last seating) students will practice formal dining service with table-side service techniques such as flambé and meat-carving. The average price of the menu is 32-45 CHF, with a vegetarian option and a menu with wine pairing.

The Lounge

The restaurant will also feature a lounge area where guests can enjoy refreshments before and after lunch or dinner. Local wines, cocktails, and other tasty libations will be featured throughout the year.
