Opus Too will delight, excite and satisfy you: this student-run restaurant provides an upscale cuisine that draws its’ inspiration from the culinary regions from around the world. Students demonstrate the skills they developed throughout the course of their studies in the culinary arts program and apply this experience to a real-world restaurant environment. Opus Too is the students’ final passage prior to graduation.
"Opus Too is designed to be a progressive global restaurant that features the freshest ingredients, friendly and knowledgeable service, found in a unique environment where great food is center of the plate," says Culinary Arts Academic Director Philip Pinkney. "Managed and operated by culinary students, Opus Too allows students to practice the theory and culinary artistry they have been taught and honed over the past two years in an exact restaurant experience. From back of the house operations in menu creation and food preparations, to the front of the house, as trained service staff and managers, our students receive the complete experience."
Established as part of the curriculum, culinary arts students are required to run all facets of this fully-operational restaurant that is open to the public. The restaurant is under the direction of two professional chef instructors who oversee every aspect of menu selection and the monitoring of overall food quality, cooking techniques and timing as well as the front-of-the-house restaurant operation from customer service and traffic flow to menu pricing and management of the profit and loss statement.
Opus Too accommodates up to 36 guests in a comfortable and elegant setting within the campus of The Art Institute of Las Vegas campus at 2350 Corporate Circle in Henderson, Nevada.
