The Epicurean to manage EMPAC cafe

empac_cafe.jpgNews to us: the well-regarded French cafe The Epicurean has taken over management of Evelyn's Cafe at EMPAC (the restaurant mentioned this on their Facebook page a few weeks back). The arts center says the cafe will now be open even when there aren't performances.

The Epicurean already has a location on Route 7 in Rensselaer County. And it took over the former Vin Santo in Latham earlier this year.

Yep, EMPAC advertises on AOA.

Comments

The word is out! We (EMPAC and the Epicurean) are still working out some small details, but an official announcement (including an opening date) is forthcoming. Until then, just imagine those cinnamon buns and/or the fresh mozzarella + pesto sandwiches you will be able to munch on while checking out an exhibition or before/after an event.

YYYAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!

Does anyone know why this partnership came to an end so quickly? I haven't been able to find any stories regarding the Epicurean leaving EMPAC, but the cafe seems to now be run by Sodexo (the food service company at RPI that runs all of the other dining locations). All references to their EMPAC location seem to have been removed from the Epicurean website.

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
