Careme's Restaurant Now Open for Dinner

September 24, 2012

Careme’s, the student-run, gourmet restaurant at the Academy of Culinary Arts, is now open for dinner, and offers a fine dining experience that’s unique in South Jersey. Careme’s is located at Atlantic Cape Community College, 5100 Black Horse Pike, in Mays Landing.

The following dinner special is available until Wednesday, Oct. 10: three courses for $19.95 per person (plus tax and gratuity).

The a la carte menu features choices from appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, desserts and fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. ACA’s student-chefs also make all dessert pastries, breads and rolls. Tableside cooking may be offered.

Careme’s is open Monday-Friday, when classes are in session. Guests are seated for dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted. For reservations, call (609) 343-4940.

The restaurant is named after the first “celebrity chef” in culinary history, Marie-Antoine Careme. Careme’s command of culinary art was so famous in the early 19th century that he became known as “the chef of kings and the king of chefs.”

The ACA has been training future chefs and food service professionals for more than 30 years. For more information about the Academy, call 1-800-645‑CHEF, e-mail or visit
