Elevation Restaurant Cooks Up Takeout
“Our hope is to start offering lunch takeout on Thursday, January 14, continuing on Thursdays and Fridays — the same days that the respective Culinary classes run (Culinary 200 and Hospitality Management 190) — through Friday, March 12, the week before Winter term finals,” said chef Wayne Yeatman, chair of the Culinary program. “But we haven’t finalized logistics yet.” Service would be offered to the general public, and food payment and pickup conducted through the Shirley Ray food truck on the south side of the Jungers Culinary Institute. Since details are still being worked out, Yeatman advises foodies to check regularly with Elevation’s website for the official launch and lunch menu.
