The only secondary-school culinary arts program in town to serve up daily public seatings, SECTA offers real-world experience to its students and a darn good lunch to its guests. In the kitchen, teens sweat and sling plates like grizzled veterans while their classmates in black bow ties keep the front of house happy. If you’re a truly savvy cheapskate foodie, make sure to add SECTA to your lunchtime rotation. 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. Tue-Fri during the school year; 5710 Mountain Vista St.; 702-799-7500, ext. 4058 for reservations, CCSD.net.
