Technique @ Le Cordon Bleu: Review

I recently discovered Le Cordon Bleu has a signature restaurant in Austin,TX. Technique, as its called, is located inside the cooking school, near the Domain mall. The meal is prepared by Le Cordon Bleu students and is overseen by a chef instructor. For lunch, the menu contains a variety of starters, main plates and desserts. You have your choice of three courses for $10.00. No, I did not leave out a zero. Your choice of a starter, main plate and dessert, and I'll repeat, for only $10.00. I was hoping there was not some sort of catch to this, like you have to leave 80% gratuity or dance on the table after your meal, but there were no hidden fees. The dining area is small and contemporary in decor. In fact, there is limited seating, so making a reservation on their website would be my suggestion, instead on just walking in and hoping to get a table.

I started with the Watermelon Arugula Salad, while the hubby had the Caprese Salad. 

For the main plate, I opted for the Halibut, while the hubby had the Veal Shank. 

 For dessert, I had the Salted Carmel Pot de Creme and the hubby had the Chocolate Mousse. I'm going to be honest here, I liked his choice better. 

Overall, It was a lovely lunch for an affordable price. To get more information on  Technique in Austin, TX, please click here. 
You don't have to dance on the table here to get the $10.00 "special". You can do that on your own time.


  1. wow, that's a great deal for $10. wish i lived closer so i could check it out!

  2. Amy - I was completely blown away by the price of the meal considering it was at the Le Cordon Bleu.
