$16 grilled steak, $12 roast chicken and $6 hand-made gnocchi? No, this isn’t Pastamania, it’s the Culinary Institute Of America’s latest menu at their student run restaurant, Top Table.

The Italian menu will run from 27th August to October 2nd, and will feature formal French cuisine thereafter.

The meal will include fresh bread made daily, and you can also choose to order student created cocktails ($8) and mocktails.
