Celebrate the Holiday Season with a Lunch at Seasons

(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) If you are looking for a great restaurant to meet with a few clients, associates or friends for the holiday season, The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire has the perfect place: Seasons Restaurant.

“We have a few reservations left between now and Christmas,” said International Culinary School Director and Executive Chef Eyad Joseph. “The restaurant was designed as on-the-job training for our talented and award-winning culinary students, but it has been highly successful since opening in July.”

Seasons is open to the public from 1 p.m. through 3 p.m., Mondays through Wednesdays, now through Dec. 17 at the San Bernardino campus, 630 East Brier Drive. Because of its popularity and seating for just 40 diners, reservations are suggested, but not required.

Seasons always offers menus featuring the best foods of a given season. For the duration of the current quarter those menus will focus on the upcoming holidays.

“That’s part of the reason the name was chosen: seasonal menus, plus seasonings in food preparation,” Chef Joseph said.

Ala carte lunch prices range from $6.50 to $12.00 The restaurant also welcomes call-in orders. The phone number for either reservations or call-in orders is (909) 915-2170.

The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Game Art & Design, Culinary Management, Graphic Design, Web Design & Interactive Media, Interior Design, Fashion and Retail Management and Media Arts & Animation, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design. There are also Associate of Science degrees in Graphic Design and Culinary Arts. Each program is offered on a year-round basis, allowing students to work uninterrupted toward their degrees.

The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire is one of The Art Institutes (, a system of over 40 education institutions located throughout North America, providing an important source of design, media arts, fashion and culinary arts professionals.
