Bistro 10UN is a seasonal, friendly, and affordable student-run restaurant at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California–San Francisco located in the heart of San Francisco's Civic Center district.


Bistro 10UN will give students from the school's two culinary-specific degree programs (Associate of Science in Culinary Arts and Bachelor of Science in Culinary Management) a place to showcase their culinary talents. The food is steeped in Americana while incorporating ingredients and techniques from around the world. Working in the restaurant, students will gain valuable experience that only working in a hands-on environment can provide. All gratuities are donated to The Art Institute of California - San Francisco Culinary Student Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance and educational dining out experiences for our students. We appreciate your generosity.

Enjoy a delectable 3 course meal Thursdays and Fridays from 11:45am-1:45pm for an amazing offer, $18 per person (not including tax or gratuity). Note that some days are not available due to midterms, finals, or breaks in-between quarters. If you have any questions about these please email our manager at esavio@aii.edu. We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to Bistro 10UN very soon!
