Careme's & Strudels will be closed until students return to classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a South Jersey fine dining experience that's unique, come to Careme's, the gourmet restaurant at the Academy of Culinary Arts. Visit us for lunch or dinner, or for one of Careme's special events! With advance arrangements, we can host groups of 10 or more for a meal, a meeting or an event.


The Academy operates a small retail store, Strudels, located adjacent to the restaurant. Strudels is open when classes are in session for the sale of excess breads, pies and pastries as available.

Our Name

Our restaurant is named after the first "celebrity chef" in culinary history,  Marie-Antoine Careme. Careme's command of culinary art was so famous in the early 19th century that he became known as "the chef of kings and the king of chefs."
