Lab Lunch: October, 2014

October 28, 2014

This month we’re celebrating Molly Osterhage’s heritage by dining at La Chatelaine in Upper Arlington. It was a delicious lunch topped off with excellent pastries from the French bakery. Yum!

Previous lab lunches have celebrated Randi Mackler’s heritage (Katzinger’s Deli) and Miguel Lopez’s heritage (Los Guachos). Lab lunches are a great way to learn more about our individual backgrounds, explore new cuisines with a native guide, and enjoy a little time together off campus.

Looking forward to our next lab lunch!
