Student preparing a meal in front of guests in the dining room.

Arguably one of Brandon's most anticipated events of the year, our annual Grey Owl restaurant is a symphony of sights, smells and flavours.

A delicious entry is prepared for a Grey Owl guest

The year at our Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts (MICA) culminates with the four-week Grey Owl fine dining restaurant. Students and faculty come together to present a fusion of nouvelle and classic cuisine in the historic Grey Owl dining room. This annual tradition has enthralled the community for years with table reservations selling out within hours of phone lines opening.

Culinary Arts students present a stunning menu to members of the public while Hotel & Restaurant Management students practice their hospitality skills with tableside service. Running this student-run event provides a practical component to both programs. It's one of the tastiest 'learn by doing' experiences at our college.

Dates: January 22 - February 16, 2018
Seating times: Varied
Reservations can be made: January 11, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.

* Closed Saturdays and Sundays

Reservations are available for tables of two, four or six. Maximum of one reservation per caller.
