Whenever I’m in Poughkeepsie, or Fishkill (visiting their giant IBM facility), Janet and I always make sure to dine at the Culinary Institute of America (The CIA).
The CIA is a world renowned chef college, and it has four on-campus restaurants, all reasonably priced, with the chef students working as your wait staff!
It’s a great way to get a world class, five star meal for under $100 (not including wine), but there are some rules:
1 – Call early – Some restaurants book-up weeks in advance
2 – Pay upon reservations – You will be changed if you don’t show-up, so make sure not to miss your reservation
You can now do online reservations, here.
Eating at the CIA is a life-changing experience.
Everyone there are die-hard foodies, and it’s all about having the meal of a lifetime!
