Description
The Spice Box is a student-run restaurant associated with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign's Hospitality Management program.

Seniors in the program are required to take the capstone level course, FSHN 443: Fine Dining Management. This course is an advanced application of food production and management principles to specific food service demands; emphasis on artistry in preparation, serving, and merchandising high quality food in quantity.
In this course, each senior is responsible for planning, staffing, executing and evaluating a financially viable themed fine dining meal. Each student is encouraged to invite and work with a guest chef from the local area or across the country to aid in this fine dining experience.

Each Spice Box meal has two menu selections: a Prix Fixe four course meal option and a Special two course meal option. Specialty wine and beverages are available. Prices vary and are determined by the students. Meals are held on select evenings each Spring.
