Student-Run Hospitality at House of York

This year’s Yale Pop-up project, run by Lucas Sin, is House of York — a family-style restaurant open on Friday’s in the Davenport Buttery. My friend Jake and I were lucky enough to get a reservation their first week (and their opening night!). Obviously, the dishes were far superior from the dining halls, and I loved the family-style concept. This first week, the Vietnamese fried chicken main was the shining star. The smorgasbord of side dishes that came along all had their own unique concepts, but were less stellar in comparison. I can testify to the fact, however, that House of York keeps on getting better and better every week. I would make a point to go at least once this semester.
