Station in WUSL dining venue lets chefs experiment

Food Lab, in the Bear's Den at Washington University-St. Louis, is designed to showcase the culinary staff's creativity.

Dining Services at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSL) has launched a station in its Bear’s Den dining venue where its chefs can showcase new menu creations without putting them on the regular menu, reports the school’s Student Life campus newspaper.

Called Food Lab, the station features a new recipe every Tuesday at lunchtime, with feedback from students encouraged.

Dishes showcased so far have included merguez sausage, Persian chicken kabobs and Vietnamese caramel braised chicken.

Bear’s Den is a multi-station residential dining venue that includes Italian, grill, Mexican, Mongolian grill, global cuisine and certified kosher concepts.

WUSL’s dining services is managed by Bon Appetit Management Co.
