The annual Grey Owl restaurant at Assiniboine Community College is a symphony of sights, smells and flavours and demand for seats always outpaces the number of seats available.

Students and faculty come together to offer up some fine dining in the historic Grey Owl dining room of the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts on the North Hill campus.

Culinary Arts students present a stunning menu to members of the public while Hotel & Restaurant Management students practice their hospitality skills with table side 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.

Abby Gooden works in ACC’s Culinary Arts Department and she knows first hand how popular the Grey Owl is to area residents. “I have been on the phone for hours on end trying to get a reservation and it is popular every year.”

Steps have been taken to offer people a better chance of getting a seat at the table. Over the four weeks the restaurant is open close to 1,500 people will be served.

We’ve added extra seating times to accommodate more people. The restaurant is open Monday thru Friday and we aren’t open on weekends. Students will host about 74 people each night the restaurant is open.”

The Grey Owl restaurant runs every weekday evening from Jan. 21 to Feb. 15.Reservations can be made starting Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 a.m. by calling 204.725.8738 or toll-free at 800.862.6307 ext 6516. While reservations are free, they are limited to one per caller.
