    NAME A NEW RESTAURANT – Win A Gourmet Dinner for Four

    (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Ciro’s, Brown Derby, Russian Tea Room, Four Seasons, Sardi’s, Musso & Frank, Spago, all great names of great restaurants.

    If you had a new restaurant serving gourmet cuisine at reasonable prices, what would you name it? That’s the question The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire is faced with. What to call their new 40-seat student-run restaurant that opens to the public in April.

    The solution was simple: “Let’s have a contest to name the restaurant,” Chef Eyad Joseph said. The Academic Director of Culinary Arts got right to the point, and the institute’s Name The Restaurant contest was born.

    The rules are easy: Just give the institute your name for the upscale bistro, as many as you’d like, by emailing jbarry@aii.edu by Saturday, March 22, 2008.

    Complete your entry with your contact information and proposed name. Judging will be in the hands of The International Culinary School’s Executive Committee, and their decision will be final. The winner will be notified by telephone and e-mail on Friday, March 28. The institute’s judging will be based on originality and uniqueness.

    If your restaurant name is chosen, you and three guests will be the guests of honor at the restaurant’s Grand Opening on Tuesday April 8 at 6:30 p.m. You and your guests will be welcome to any items on the elaborate menu.

    The Saturday, March 22, 2008 deadline is rapidly approaching, so go online and make your restaurant name suggestions right away.

    The restaurant will be open two days a week, Tuesday and Wednesday, for gourmet dinner bistro style from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. starting on April 8. The Culinary students will run the restaurant, from creating the menu to serving the patrons. “This is part of the students curriculum,” said Chef Joseph.
