News and Events
We are thrilled to introduce Lantern Table, a community kitchen and private dining room next door to Lantern. The idea for the new room began with our desire to create a space where we could gather for parties, cooking classes and conversations focused on the stories behind the food on our plates and the people around the table. Find more information here.
We are happy to announce Lantern Garden is now open! Join us on the patio every evening for drinks and our full menu.

Student Action with Farmworkers
Here's a thought-provoking TEDx Talk from Lantern's Andrea Reusing in which the Chapel Hill, NC chef urges the food world to "make a place for farm workers at the table." Reusing points out that we live in a world run amuck with "foodies," saying, "We have tote bags for our tote bags. Our compost piles have their own Tumblrs." But yet somehow still the food community often ignores "something that's much more fundamental to the way we live: the lives of the people who harvest the food that we eat." Eater
