The Palette

The Palette is the student-run dining room at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California--San Diego, a campus of Argosy University. Working in the restaurant is the culmination of the culinary students' educational journey.

The Palette's weekly-rotating menu features many of the cuisines and disciplines taught at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California--San Diego. Dishes include everything from American regional favorites to multi-cultural world fusions.

The restaurant's normal operating hours are lunch and dinner on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Please call 858.598.1405 to make reservations and to learn about this week's menu.
