Hours & Location
OPEN: Tuesday through Saturday
LUNCH: 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m.

The Bocuse Restaurant is located at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY on the east bank of the Hudson River, three miles north of Poughkeepsie, midway between New York City and Albany on U.S. Route 9.
We’re approximately 1 1/2 hours from Albany and 2 hours from New York City, Hartford, CT, and Scranton, PA when traveling by car.
To provide you with a better experience and make payment easier, our campus has gone cashless. We do accept all major credit cards.
Parking & Campus Map
Visitors can conveniently park in the CIA’s two-story parking deck located in Anton Plaza where you can also enjoy breath-taking views of the scenic Hudson River from a 30,000 square foot terrace.

A key component of the education process at the CIA is learning how to deliver outstanding service. Students at The Culinary Institute of America are not permitted to accept tips, in accordance with IRS regulations and the CIA Student Code of Conduct. We thank you for honoring the “no tipping” policy, and for giving our students the opportunity to serve you. However, we do include a 20% Student Support Surcharge on each check which is returned to our students through scholarships, support of student activities, and the purchase of graduation jackets. Thank you for helping to support the educational mission of the CIA.
