Dining at the Culinary Arts Center

Open Kitchen Meals

Our culinary students are cooking, and the kitchen’s open to the public. Join us at the CT State Manchester Culinary Arts Center for luncheons and dinners featuring a full-course menu of tantalizing, classic dishes. While our student “chefs-in-training” will wow you with their culinary skills, our wait staff of culinary arts and hospitality students will provide you with superior table service. We invite you to join our students as they learn and you enjoy a relaxing and delicious meal.
