Student-run restaurant features daily “bistro-style” lunches

Henry’s, a unique student-run restaurant in the heart of the Rochester Institute of Technology campus, is “legal.” Beginning its 21st year, the restaurant is up and running for fall quarter.

Located on the fourth floor of the George Eastman Building, the full-service restaurant features bistro-style lunches, served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays through Nov. 11.

Operated by RIT hospitality and service management majors, Henry’s is named for Henry Lomb, founding partner of Bausch & Lomb Inc. and major benefactor to RIT’s food management program. “Henry’s Room” first opened in 1952 on RIT’s downtown Rochester campus. Henry’s restaurant in its present location opened in 1982.

RIT’s 111-year-old School of Hospitality and Service Management offers Restaurant Management and Restaurant Operations courses. Students also gain experience from state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories, including a food lab to develop and evaluate new food products and equipment.

Part of the College of Applied Science and Technology, RIT’s college of innovation, the school offers undergraduate degrees in food management, food marketing and distribution, hotel and resort management, nutrition management and travel and tourism management. Graduate degrees are offered in career and human resource development, health systems administration, hospitality-tourism management, instructional technology and service management.
