Hotel & Restaurant Management student greets guests at the Great Grey Owl Restaurant

Great Grey Owl Restaurant

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

The year at our Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts (MICA) culminates with the four-week Great Grey Owl fine dining restaurant. Students and faculty come together to present a fusion of nouvelle and classic cuisine in the historic Great 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 and 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.

If you are a non-profit inquiring about a table for fundraising efforts, please refer to the bottom of this page.

Guests may park for free in the South Parking Lot. If space is unavailable, you can park in the East Parking Lot.

Every MICA event is organized by students and faculty, providing a practical component to both our Culinary Arts and Hotel & Restaurant Management programs.
