Courses Restaurant

Our facility includes Courses Restaurant, where diners may enjoy meals prepared by aspiring chefs under the direction of chef instructors. This hands-on experience plays an important role in the development of future culinary leaders. Our students gain this valuable experience through the helpfulness of our friends in the community.

The restaurant serves both lunch and dinner. We are also able to provide service for meetings and special events of up to 45 people.

Alcoholic beverages may not be brought to the restaurant, and alcohol is not served with meals.

Please call 713.353.3644 or e-mail Chef Stephen Griffin at, if you would like to be included in our weekly e-mail broadcast describing upcoming dinner menus. We look forward to seeing you at Courses!
