Student’s at Nathan Hale High School opened their real-world restaurant this week.


It looks like a restaurant, but it's at Nathan Hale High School.


‘Nathan’s Bistro’ is a real restaurant attached to the school.


Several days each month, people can eat the meals the students prepare.


The Tulsa State Fair is here this week and the students are getting a chance to show off their cooking skills.


“It was a pretty easy sauce to make, I'll have to practice it a few more times just to get it right, so when i go to the fair i won't mess up, but other than that it's been good," said

Shady Vaclavik, a Nathan Hale junior,"


“They can learn different flavor combinations that they would never think to try like a miso sesame ginger onion dressing. might not sound great if you've never tried miso before, but once you experience that, it's completely different," said Chef Nicole Graham.



Students prepare the lunch every first and last week for each month.

A meal costs about $8 for takeout and $10 to sit down.
