The Red Room at Preston Ridge Campus
Hospitality and Culinary Training Facility
Welcome to The Red Room, “A Higher Degree of Dining,” where guests are treated to mouth-watering cuisine and great hospitality in an elegant, yet peaceful dining area serviced byCollin College Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Educationstudents.

Prepped as a working educational lab, The Red Room is unique for many reasons. Most notably, aside from the restaurant opening its doors to the public, The Red Room is serviced by Collin College’s Dining Room Service and A La Carte Cooking classes.

This combination allows Collin College students in the Dining Room Service class to support the front-of-the-house restaurant management experience while the A La Carte Cooking students prepare, cook and expedite food in the back-of-the-house.

Meanwhile, students in both classes learn the importance of communication between the dining room and kitchen and how to market the restaurant and staff while delivering exceptional service.

Hours of Service:
Lunch seating is from 11:00 am -12:30 pm

All menus are a collaboration between the student Executive Chef and Chef Tom Severs

The Art in The Red Room

The Art Department and the Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Education at Collin College are happy to announce that we have entered into a partnership! The fruit of this partnership will be the presentation of several new art exhibitions in"The Red Room", which is located on the beautiful Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco. Throughout the spring semester, this exciting venue will serve a tasteful menu of Culinary Delights as well as showcase stimulating alumni artwork.

Our current exhibition includes the works of Studio Professor TheresaTraweekand Collin Alumni, Mercedes Irwin. This exhibit of exciting portraits embraces two different styles of figurative portraiture. Professor Traweek’s works, are reminiscent of the Bay Area Figurative traditions of the 1950’s & 60’s, but with greater introduction of vivid contrast of color and textural exploration. Mercedes works are more subtle in their physical use of paint, but no less full of interest in their movement use of chiaroscuro.

Both artists’ portray thoughtful moments of reflection in the representation of their subjects.

Mercedes Irwin completed her core curriculum at Collin College in the spring of 2011 and transferred to Texas A & M University Commerce that fall.  She will graduate with a BFA in studio painting this May.  Her tenure there over the last 3 years has resulted in a very successful body of work.

Mercedes states she “has been obsessed with the human form from my first figure drawing exercise here at Collin College.”  Mercedes pieces exhibit two female portraits with a great deal of movement with a subtle contrast of warm & cool colors.
