Sérénité Restaurant and Culinary Institute to Open March 29th


1 comment
Sérénité Restaurant & Culinary Institute (538 W. Liberty St., 330-952-2611), the EDWINS-style brasserie in Medina geared around the recovery community, will open its doors on Thursday, March 29th. Based on the vision of Brandon Chrostowski, the restaurant offers its staff a series of workshops and recovery support. As students of the eight-month program, workers will hone their skills in fine-dining.

“It’s almost identical to Edwins – it’s a nonprofit restaurant and training program – with the fundamental differences being that it’s for recovery and it’s delivered through a brasserie,” says Chrostowski. “We know from the success of EDWINS that if you equip men and women with the knowledge, tools and resources to face challenges head on, they are bound for success.”

Sérénité is a French-style restaurant offering a selection of appetizers and raw bar items from $6 to $14 and entrees priced from $14 to $34, including dishes such as duck confit, escargot, coq au vin, and braised leg of rabbit.

Michael Flaherty will serve as the general manager and Gilbert Brenot is the chef de cuisine.
