Mar 16, 2018

Florida State College at Jacksonville is getting into the restaurant business.

The school’s 20West Café on Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville opens its doors Monday for breakfast and lunch.

FSCJ President Cynthia Beauteau said not only does the restaurant showcase the work of art, hospitality and interior design students but the chef is also a graduate of the school’s culinary arts program.

“He has designed a menu that is farm-to-fork. So not only are we contributing to the urban core of Jacksonville, all of our produce, all of the food used to create the menu items, are locally sourced. So we’re supporting local as well,” said Beauteau.

20West Café will be open from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.,  Monday through Friday.  The entire restaurant can also be reserved for private events at night and on weekends.

As for the menu, Beauteau said right now she is partial to the cauliflower steak and the Haitian Club Sandwich.
