Restaurant Gem on Campus

Restaurant Gem on Campus

Some of the best fine dining in Menomonie can be found on the UW-Stout campus.

If grilled swordfish with red pepper coulis, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh thyme oil makes your mouth water, then check out the Rendezvous on the second floor of the Home Economics Building.

Rendezvous is a restaurant where students apply their education in fine dining, fine cuisine and control systems. Students also practice labor relations, purchasing, food and beverage cost control, and food service management in this food service laboratory, supervised by Peter D’Souza, associate professor of hospitality and tourism. 

In the process, patrons enjoy menu selections such as roast breast of duck with Danish bleu cheese and fine herb sauce, or shrimp tequila in a puff pastry shell.
