SMCC offers public culinary arts luncheons throughout the week in our Culinary Arts Dining Room on our South Portland Campus. The Culinary Arts Dining Room serves as an upscale epicurean “lab” for the College’s Culinary Arts department and offers a spectacular view of Casco Bay. Here, you will enjoy a gourmet dining experience while our talented culinary arts students learn the fine art of running a full-service restaurant.
