We came into town for my doctoral graduation. Walking around we found this school and restaurant. What fun. It normally takes at least a week to procure a reservation, but they were able to squeeze us in for Friday night. We were dressed up from the hooding ceremony, but casual dress was the general rule. The food was very dressed up though. The menu allowed us to choose an appetizer, main course, and dessert for 16 dollars. We had the roasted asparagus Espanola to start. (frisée, poached egg, romesco sauce, jamon Serrano and asparagus) very balanced and tasty. For the maincourse my wife had rack of lamb (heirloom cherry tomatoes , mushrooms, mashed potatoes). I enjoyed the Fritto Misto (tiger shrimp, calamari, squash blossoms, mushrooms, smoked paprika aioli, house made slaw). Both dishes were perfectly cooked and flavorful. I can't begin to describe how good the aioli was. For dessert both had the chocolate KaHLUA cheesecake. So rich and good. Many tasty items we couldn't pick...but check www.techinquerestraurant.com for reservations. It was food network type of experience.
