CrAive Restaurant is the student-run restaurant at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Virginia Beach. The restaurant serves as the dining lab for the school's culinary students, offering a unique combination of real-world and instructional experiences.
Under the supervision of chefs and instructors, students create dishes in the kitchen and run all aspects of the dining room. From food ordering and preparation to guest seating and serving, CrAive Restaurant offers a quality dining experience with international cuisine. Patrons can watch the students in action through the wall of windows that separates the dining room from the kitchen.
