“100% youth run restaurant”
Cafe Blue Moose was founded in 2006 by two Bucks County teens searching for something new to do on the weekends. Skylar Bird (14) and Pat Rodgers (15) launched forward into the exciting adventure of running the nation's first 100% youth-run restaurant with absolutely no knowledge of how to run a restaurant. They began serving family and friends on a small scale basis out of Skylar's converted mill home in Buckingham, PA. Word soon spread about what they were up to, and they quickly made more friends as area locals wanting to check out this unique dining experience became part of their weekend supper club. Pat Rodgers moved on from the Blue Moose during its first year in 2006. This is when Skylar decided he needed some more culinary experience to improve the cuisine at the Moose. Skylar began apprenticing part time at Just Eat by BrownGold, a unique European style bistro in the Buckingham Green shopping center. After some pleasurable time working there, while continuing to operate the Moose of the weekends, Skylar took a four month hiatus and traveled to France where he set about knocking on the doors of several French restaurants until he finally found an internship in 30 seat restaurant in the city of Lyon. Upon returning home from France, the Blue Moose menu was transformed into what it is now, a European style prix fixe menu. Since 2006 the Cafe Blue Moose has worked with dozens of Bucks County youth teaching them cooking technique and group work dynamics. While continuing to operate the Blue Moose on the weekends, Skylar attended the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan in 2009, and worked in Manhattan at Floyd Cardoz's Tabla before it closed at the end of 2010. What he likes best about cooking is that it combines art and science and creates happiness!.
