Our Name

Our restaurant is named after the first "celebrity chef" in culinary history, Marie-Antoine Careme. Careme's command of culinary art was so famous in the early 19th century that he became known as "the chef of kings and the king of chefs."

Our Special Appeal

This is where our dedicated culinary students practice the skills that may some day make them famous. Someone who cooks or serves your meal here today may become tomorrow's "Emeril" or "Julia!"


At Careme's, our goal is to make you feel special -- from the way we greet you with a smile, to the careful way we garnish your plate, to the professional way we pour your beverage. And of course, there's...

The Food

Whether you like to sample new food trends or stick with familiar traditions, you'll savor the appetizing array prepared with care and presented with pride. Don't be surprised if you find ice carvings or a tableside preparation featured on the day you visit. All our baked goods and pastries are made in our kitchens by our student-chefs.

The Menu

Our lunch and dinner menu changes every day, but our standards never change. High quality food preparation, attentive service, and affordable prices are some of the reasons our patrons return again and again.

At Careme's we're happy to accommodate groups, meetings and special events.
