Congratulations to Cabrillo culinary students and to Mike Wille, instructor at Cabrillo College’s Advanced Culinary Arts program. Wille’s inventive chefs-in-progress made a brilliant showing at this year’s Clam Chowder Festival – taking First Place in the “Best Restaurant Boston” category, Second in “Best Restaurant Manhattan” and won the “Overall People’s Choice” award in the Professional category.

Wille admited that these recent awards were an honor for his talented students, and that he was “excited about the quality of this year’s entries.”

So you have even more reasons to dine at Cabrillo’s Piño Alto dining room.
