Special place

To the Editor:

Recently, my husband and I enjoyed a meal at a local restaurant where the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the service was superior. Where was this special place? We dined at Slainte, the student-run restaurant at McHenry County College. Reminiscent of Brigadoon, the restaurant magically appears in the spring semester of each year for a few brief weeks, and those lucky enough to visit are treated to a very special evening.

Students showcase the front- and back-of-the-house skills they’ve learned at MCC as they seat you, take your order, prepare and serve the three-course meal you’ve chosen from the menu. And did I mention the food is delicious? Slainte is open Monday and Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m. through April 22. More information is available at www.mchenry.edu/slainte.
