Our Restaurants Are Our Classrooms

Where’s the best place to learn how to cook? In a kitchen. How to serve customers? In a restaurant. We prepare our students for professional advancement in a dynamic world by putting them right to work in our award-winning restaurants. Why spend your time staring at a blackboard from the back of a classroom when you could be cooking?

At NECI on Main, La Brioche, The Chef’s Table, National Life Cafeteria, and the Vermont College of Fine Arts Cafeteria, students create classic and modern cuisine under the guidance of our award-winning chef instructors, using the finest Vermont ingredients.
