About Us

We prepare our customers for success in the workplace.

“This program and facility needs to be celebrated by everyone in the state.” Chef Marc Dunham

District 21 is a truly exceptional, evening dining experience. You’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds, smells, and flavors of culinary art at its best.

District 21 is designed for students to complete internships after they finish the Culinary Arts program at Francis Tuttle. The restaurant is unique because it gives students a real work experience, allowing them to develop as potential employees that are dependable, extremely bright, and always anxious to learn more.

We’re training the next generation of cooks for the region’s culinary field, honing their skills by using the best curriculum, facilities and faculty available.
