September 28, 2016, Jersey City, NJ – One of the best dining values in the area is one of the most affordable and enjoyable, and it is available via the Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Foundation Subscription Dining Series.
Now in its sixth year, the Series provides business people and residents with the opportunity to enjoy superior, three-course luncheons – beautifully prepared and elegantly served – on Fridays at the College’s acclaimed Culinary Arts Institute (CAI), at a cost of just $35 per person.
There’s a great bonus to the Series: proceeds are used to award much-needed financial assistance to deserving students at the College!
The HCCC Foundation Subscription Dining luncheons are planned and prepared by the Executive Chef and professional chef/instructors of the College’s Culinary Arts Institute, and include appetizer, entrée and dessert, plus non-alcoholic beverages. (Wine and beer are available by the bottle or glass for an additional cost and must be paid by cash or credit card at the time of service). Service is provided by the professionally trained HCCC CAI students from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Culinary Arts Institute at 161 Newkirk Street in Jersey City – just two blocks from the Journal Square PATH Station.
HCCC Vice President for Development Joseph Sansone said reservations are a must and may be made for two to six guests on any and all of the Series dates – September 30, October 7, October 14, October 21, October 28, November 4, November 11 and November 18.
“Those who take advantage of the Series really enjoy a world-class dining experience at an unbelievably low price,” Mr. Sansone stated. “Those who have dined here are sometimes surprised by the great cuisine, beautiful atmosphere and exceptional service. However, they shouldn’t be; the Hudson County Community College Culinary Arts program has been recognized as the number-six culinary arts studies program in the U.S.A.”
