Eden's on campus is a student run dining room, and for the spring 2015 semester is serving 8 - course dinners for about $36 a seat, at the price includes the wine served for each course. Here is what Chef John (their teacher) has to say about the dinner this week:
Cherry trees are about to blossom and Anime Detour - the Japanese popular culture convention - is about to begin, so Eden's On Campus offers an eight-course celebration of Japanese cuisine. Some dishes will be traditional, some modern, some shameless.
Here is the menu
Anime Detour Japanese Feast

Gyoza-style pot stickers with pork, daikon radish and cabbage
Mixed Seaweed salad with Tsukemono and Wafu dressing

Lychee Ginger Sorbet
Deconstructed Sukiyaki with Daikon & Purple Sweet Potatoes
